OMB Control Number: 1024-0029.
Title: Concessioner Annual Financial Reports.
Form(s): 10-356, 10-356A.
Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of information.
Abstract: The regulations at 36 CFR Part 51 primarily implement Title IV of the National Parks Omnibus Management Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105-391 or the Act), which requires that the Secretary of the Interior exercise authority in a manner consistent with a reasonable opportunity for a concessioner to realize a profit on his operation as a whole commensurate with the capital invested and the obligations assumed. It also requires that franchise fees be determined with consideration to the opportunity for net profit in relation to both gross receipts and capital invested. The financial information being collected is necessary to provide insight into, and knowledge of the concessioner's operation so that this authority can be exercised and franchise fees determined in a timely manner and without an undue burden on the concessioner. This program will measure performance in meeting goals as required by the 1995 Government Performance and Results Act.
