Solicitation of a Business Opportunity for Marina Services at Keller Ferry and Seven Bays Marinas within Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area
Contact: Kim Gagliolo, (415) 623-2227
The National Park Service (NPS) issued two prospectuses on October 31, 2012 for services at the Keller Ferry and Seven Bays Marinas located within Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area, a unit of the National Park Service. The two prospectuses are for two different levels of service as well as two different term lengths for the same area and are described below:
·Full Service marina operation identified as "Full Service Draft Contract" includes houseboat and other boat rentals, moorage, retail/grocery, marine fuel and oil sales, pump-out service, and related services. The Full Service Draft Contract is for a term of fifteen (15) years.
·Limited Service marina operation identified as "Limited Service Draft Contract" includes moorage, marine fuel and oil sales, pump-out service, and related services. The Limited Service Draft Contract is for a term of ten (10) years.
The NPS is interested in maintaining an appropriate level of service on the south end of Lake Roosevelt and therefore have created the two prospectuses to help facilitate interest in bidding. However, if the NPS receives a responsive offer for the Full Service Draft Contract, regardless of whether the NPS receives a responsive offer for the Limited Service Draft Contract, the NPS will select and award a concessioner for the Full Service Draft Contract.
Both prospectuses can be found electronically at http://concessions.nps.gov/prospectuses.htm or by contacting Kimberley Gagliolo, Commercial Services Specialist, at (415) 623-2227 or via email at e-mail us. If you choose to retrieve a copy of the prospectus from the NPS website, please notify Ms. Gagliolo via email so you can be placed on the mailing list and receive notifications of any future prospectus modifications.
Proposals must be received by the National Park Service, Pacific West Region, Attn: Commercial Services Office, 333 Bush Street, Suite 500, San Francisco, California 94104 no later than 4:00 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) on January 15, 2013.

Lake Roosevelt's sturgeon are 8 to 20 feet long. They are also at least 70 years old. In 1941, Grand Coulee Dam flooded the fast-moving waters they need to spawn. To help out the population, the state of Washington introduced new fish to the lake in 2006.
