The first phase of the RFQ/RFP process (i.e., the RFQ) requests the submittal of the Applicant’s statement of qualifications and general plan to any DLNR State Parks District Office by no later than 4:00 p.m. June 26, 2014.  DLNR, through an evaluation committee will determine which Applicants meet the RFQ criteria (alternatively, DLNR may form a short list of the "most qualified" Applicants) and are eligible to participate in the second step of the RFQ/RFP process (i.e., the RFP). 
The subsequent RFP phase will invite eligible applicants ("Bidders") to submit a detailed proposal for the subject property. Any lease rents proposed by the Bidder must provide a Minimum Monthly Rent of at least $2,500 per month and a percentage rent of at least 7 percent of gross receipts.  An evaluation committee approved by BLNR will evaluate the submitted proposals, and the Bidder whose proposal best satisfies the RFQ/RFP objectives and selection criteria in the assessment of the evaluation committee will be recommended to the Chairperson for selection. The Chairperson will make the final decision as to whether the recommended Bidder meets the objectives and selection criteria.  Once approved by the Chairperson, the "Selected Bidder" and DLNR will enter into exclusive negotiations for a lease agreement.  Approval of the lease terms and conditions must be obtained from the BLNR before the lease may be executed.
The commencement date of the lease will be dependent upon the termination of the current revocable permit for the premises and the clearing of the premises by the permittee in accordance with the terms of the permit.
Additional deadlines and significant dates are set forth in the RFQ/RFP.
DLNR reserves the right to amend, modify, cancel or terminate the RFQ/RFP or proposed lease; request modifications to any application proposal or proposed lease or reject any and all applications, or proposals, when it is in the best interest of DLNR.  DLNR further reserves the right to negotiate with the Selected Bidder any additional terms, conditions, or modifications to the terms set forth in this RFQ/RFP or in the Selected Bidder’s proposal; provided, however, that any negotiated modifications shall not result in the rents or payments to DLNR being less than the fees or payments proposed in the Selected Bidder’s proposal.
