GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK – Grand Canyon National Park Superintendent Dave Uberuaga has announced the availability of a prospectus for a business opportunity to provide lodging, food services, retail, transportation, mule rides and other services on the South Rim. This prospectus, similar to one announced in August 2013, outlines the business opportunity, describes the existing business and provides details on how to submit a responsive proposal.
The new 15-year contract is one of the largest in National Park Service history in terms of revenue and lodging inventory. The services required in this prospectus have generated an average of approximately $66 million in annual gross revenue.
This hospitality contract (CC-GRCA001-15) will include lodging, retail and food service in the Grand Canyon Village, including the El Tovar, Bright Angel, Maswik, Thunderbird and Kachina Lodges and Phantom Ranch, as well as retail and food service at Hermits Rest. It will also continue to include transportation services such as bus tours, taxi service and mule rides. The historic Desert View Watchtower, which is currently operated as a gift shop, will be transferred to the NPS and will remain open to the public.
The prospectus is available for online viewing here.
All interested parties are encouraged to apply and submit a responsive proposal to the prospectus. This new opportunity is being advertised on the Federal Business Opportunities website.
Responsive proposals must be received by the Intermountain Regional Office before May 12. For additional information, contact Jennifer Parker at 303-969-2661.
Concessions contracts are developed and issued under the authority of the Concessions Management Improvement Act of 1998, P.L. 105-391, and its attending regulations in 36 CFR §51.
