NPS Awards Sole-Source Concession Contract For Wireless Internet Services

Your Government counsel.™

The National Park Service recently announced its intent to award a sole-source concession contract to a start-up company to provide wireless internet access in remote but developed areas of Lake Mead National Recreation Area.  NPS has the ability to award concession contracts to a company it selects without any competition if it determines that extraordinary circumstances exist and compelling and equitable considerations justify the award.  In this situation, NPS determined that a directed award was merited because the concessioner was willing to make a significant investment in providing wireless internet access in remote areas of Lake Mead NRA.  NPS noted that the contract was likely to allow a pilot test of providing wireless internet services in these areas.
