SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The temporary concession contract is proposed to be awarded to Cary and Geraldine Spannagel, who operate as Bristle Cone Pine Company, Inc., and are qualified persons pursuant to 36 CFR 51.3. Following termination of the prior concession contract (CC-GRSA003-07) within Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve in March 2007, the National Park Service proposes to award a temporary concession contract to Cary and Geraldine Spannagel, who operate as Bristle Cone Pine Company, Inc., to be effective May 1, 2007 through December 31, 2009, or a term of 2 years and 8 months. A new concession contract cannot be awarded in time to avoid the interruption of visitor services during the 2007-2009 operation seasons. The National Park Service has determined that a temporary contract is necessary to avoid interruption of visitor services and has taken all reasonable and appropriate steps to consider alternatives to avoid an interruption of visitor services.

This action is issued pursuant to 36 CFR 51.24(a). This is not a request for proposals and no prospectus is being issued at this time.
