Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 171 / Friday, September 3, 2010 / Notices new contract. Prospective new concessioners for this contract will be required to pay the previous concessioner its ending LSI value. Accordingly, the significantly lower ending LSI value under the final LSI alternative, in contrast to the significantly higher ending LSI value as proposed by the commenter, lowers the entry cost to prospective new concessioners and thereby encourages the submission of competitive proposals in future solicitations. 2. Comment: A concerned citizen commented to the effect that the new contract should not be trusted and that Government contracts should be shut down because they always prove detrimental to the public. Response: NPS considers the new contract to be in the public interest and in furtherance of the NPS mission to preserve and protect areas of the national park system while making them available for public enjoyment. Public Availability of Further Information Complete details and further explanation of the final LSI alternative are publically available at http:// www.nps.gov/commercialservices/. NPS will amend the prospectus by public notice in FedBizOpp.gov in order to implement the final LSI alternative. This Federal Register notice regarding the LSI alternative, although not required, was issued in order to provide the public a complete understanding of the NPS alternative LSI authority (exercised for the first time in this transaction).
