Pursuant to the NPS Concessions Management Improvement Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105-391; 36 CFR part 51), the proposed LSI Guide provides information regarding LSI terms and concepts and discusses the various types of capital improvements eligible for LSI, including a table listing types of equipment and materials used in real property improvements that may or may not be classified as fixtures. The proposed LSI Guide also includes discussion of how to estimate LSI values, including the effects of inflation and depreciation. The proposed LSI Guide is not intended to describe all LSI requirements or circumstances. The proposed LSI Guide does not adopt requirements or policy for the National Park Service or National Park Service concessioners.
