All of the concession contracts listed in the first table below will expire by their terms on or before December 31, 2019. The National Park Service intends to extend the concession contracts shown until the specific date shown in the “Extension Date” column, or until the effective date of a new concession contract, whichever occurs first.

For the second table, the contract is extended until the date shown in the “Extension Date” column. Under the provisions of current concession contracts, the National Park Service authorizes extension of visitor services for the listed contracts under the terms and conditions of the current contract (as amended if applicable). The extension of operations does not affect any rights with respect to selection for award of a new concession contract. The National Park Service has determined the proposed extensions are necessary to avoid interruption of visitor services and has taken all reasonable and appropriate steps to consider alternatives to avoid such interruption. The publication of this notice merely reflects the intent of the National Park Service and does not bind the National Park Service to extend or award any of the contracts listed below.

The information in the third table shows concession contracts for which the National Park Service intends to award temporary concession contracts to qualified persons under the authority of 36 CFR 51.24(a), for a term not to exceed 3 years. The NPS intends for the temporary concession contracts to commence as of the specific dates shown in the “Effective Date” column. This notice is not a request for proposals.
