The National Park Service is soliciting proposals for guided vehicle tours at Haleakalā National Park on Maui.

Similar services are currently operated through annual Commercial Use Authorizations, which Park representatives say, will no longer be issued once concession operations are in effect.

“Concession operators provide important services for national park visitors and are valued park partners,” said Haleakalā National Park Superintendent Natalie Gates in a press release. “We believe these concessioner tour services will bring high quality experiences to our visitors.”

The prospectus seeks proposals from interested parties to operate the services under a concession contract.  The prospectus includes detailed instructions for submission of proposals.

The park’s 2012 Commercial Services Plan describes the need and purpose of operating the contract with a term of ten years.
