Concession Contracts

Concession contracts are one method of authorizing commercial visitor services. They have the following characteristics:

  • The term of concession contracts is generally 10 years or less.

  • Some concession contracts have a "preference in renewal."

  • Contracts are awarded under competition and are limited in number.

  • The concessioner pays a franchise fee to the government determined by the probable value to the concessioner for the privileges provided by the contract.
