The National Park Service intends to award each contract to a concessioner currently operating under a long-term concessions contract. If the National Park Service is unable to reach acceptable terms, however, it may find other qualified persons for the award of each of the temporary contracts. The National Park Service has determined that the issuance of temporary concession contracts not to exceed 3 years 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 in accordance with 36 CFR 51.24.
