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 PO 00000 Frm 00116 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.
