Office of Acquisition Management
The Office of Acquisition Management develops and implements policies to ensure compliance with Federal, Departmental, and Bureau Acquisition Regulations and Directives. It negotiates and establishes contracts and assistance agreements for Harpers Ferry Center and the Appalachian Trail Project Office, as well as for parks and regions.
The office maintains a negotiated Indefinite Delivery - Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract network rich in talent and as unique as the media found throughout the National Park Service. Contracts include illustrators and artists, natural history model makers, planning and design of indoor and outdoor exhibits, cartographic services, exhibit fabricators, photographers, wayside exhibit panel imaging services, and audiovisual depot equipment.
Through its IDIQ contract network, the office manages the Center’s Task Order Assistance Programs, which allow parks and regions to work directly with many of the Center’s IDIQ contractors.
The office also responds to public and park inquiries regarding the rights to film and video programs, and to audiovisual footage acquired by the Center.
