SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The National Park Service leasing program allows any person or governmental entity to lease buildings and associated property, administered by the Secretary of the Interior as part of the National Park System, under the authority of the Director of the National Park Service. A lease may not authorize an activity that could be authorized by a concessions contract or commercial use authorization. All leases must provide for the payment of fair market value rent. The Director may retain rental payments for park infrastructure needs and, in some cases, to provide administrative support of the leasing program. Our authority to collect information for the leasing program is derived from Title 54, United States Code, section 102101 et seq. (54 U.S.C. 102101 et seq.), Title 54 of the United States Code, section 306121 (54 U.S.C. 306121), and Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 18 (36 CFR part 18). For competitive leasing opportunities, the regulations require the submission of proposals or bids by parties interested in applying for a lease. The regulations also require that the Director approve lease amendments, construction or demolition of structures, and encumbrances on leasehold interests. We collect Information from anyone who wishes to submit a bid or proposal to lease a property. The Director may issue a request for bids if the amount of rent is the only criterion for award of a lease. The Director issues a request for proposals when the award of a lease is based on selection criteria other than the rental rate. A request for proposals may be preceded by a request for qualifications to select a ‘‘short list’’ of potential offerors that meet minimum management, financial, and other qualifications necessary for submission of a proposal. The Director may enter into negotiations for a lease with nonprofit organizations and units of government without soliciting proposals or bids. In those cases, the Director collects information from the other party regarding the planned use of the premises, potential modifications to the premises, and other information as necessary to support a decision on whether or not to enter into a lease. We also collect Information from existing leaseholders who seek to: • Sublet a leased property or assign the lease to a new lessee. • Construct or demolish portions of a leased property. • Amend a lease to change the type of activities permitted under the lease. • Encumber (mortgage) the leased premises. We use the information to evaluate offers, proposed subleases or assignments, proposed construction or demolition, the merits of proposed lease amendments, and proposed encumbrances. The completion times for each information collection requirement vary substantially depending on the complexity of the leasing opportunity. II. Data OMB Control Number: 1024–0233.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The National Park Service leasing program allows any person or 
governmental entity to lease buildings and associated property, 
administered by the Secretary of the Interior as part of the National 
Park System, under the authority of the Director of the National Park 
Service. A lease may not authorize an activity that could be authorized 
by a concessions contract or commercial use authorization. All leases 
must provide for the payment of fair market value rent. The Director 
may retain rental payments for park infrastructure needs and, in some 
cases, to provide administrative support of the leasing program.
    Our authority to collect information for the leasing program is 
derived from Title 54, United States Code, section 102101 et seq. (54 
U.S.C. 102101 et seq.), Title 54 of the United States Code, section 
306121 (54 U.S.C. 306121), and Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, 
Part 18 (36 CFR part 18). For competitive leasing opportunities, the 
regulations require the submission of proposals or bids by parties 
interested in applying for a lease. The regulations also require that 
the Director approve lease amendments, construction or demolition of 
structures, and encumbrances on leasehold interests.
    We collect Information from anyone who wishes to submit a bid or 
proposal to lease a property. The Director may issue a request for bids 
if the amount of rent is the only criterion for award of a lease. The 
Director issues a request for proposals when the award of a lease is 
based on selection criteria other than the rental rate. A request for 
proposals may be preceded by a request for qualifications to select a 
``short list'' of potential offerors that meet minimum management, 
financial, and other qualifications necessary for submission of a 
proposal.
    The Director may enter into negotiations for a lease with nonprofit 
organizations and units of government without soliciting proposals or 
bids. In those cases, the Director collects information from the other 
party regarding the planned use of the premises, potential 
modifications to the premises, and other information as necessary to 
support a decision on whether or not to enter into a lease.
    We also collect Information from existing leaseholders who seek to:
     Sublet a leased property or assign the lease to a new 
lessee.
     Construct or demolish portions of a leased property.
     Amend a lease to change the type of activities permitted 
under the lease.
     Encumber (mortgage) the leased premises.
    We use the information to evaluate offers, proposed subleases or 
assignments, proposed construction or demolition, the merits of 
proposed lease amendments, and proposed encumbrances. The completion 
times for each information collection requirement vary substantially 
depending on the complexity of the leasing opportunity.
