43 CFR 2932.31 authorizes the BLM Director to periodically adjust SRP fees. This notice establishes that effective immediately, the SRP minimum fee for commercial use is $115 per year (an increase from $110). The minimum fee for both competitive events and organized group activities remains $6 per person per day, and the minimum fee for an assigned site for exclusive commercial use is $230 per site (an increase from $220). Individual States also have the option of imposing application fees as a matter of cost recovery and/or establishing higher minimum fees for SRPs. The next fee adjustment is scheduled for March 1, 2023.
The intended effect of the fee calculation process is to ensure that fees cover administrative costs of permit issuance, provide a fair return to the U.S. Government for use of the public lands, and reflect fair market value. The BLM, in coordination with the U.S. Forest Service, adjusts the minimum commercial, competitive, organized group and activity special recreation permit fees, and minimum assigned site fees every 3 years.
These fees are calculated and adjusted based on the change in the Implicit Price Deflator-Gross Domestic Product Index (IPD-GDP). The IPD-GDP is also available from the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis, at the following website: http://www.bea.gov/iTable/index_nipa.cfm.
