Rec. One-Stop competition reopens
The U.S. Forest Service will heed the Government Accountability Office's suggestions and reopen discussions with the three final vendors to provide a consolidated reservation system for all of the nation's parks under the Recreation One-Stop e-government initiative.
The Forest Service will detail for companies, including original awardee ReserveAmerica, Ballston Spa, N.Y., and protester Spherix Inc., Beltsville, Md., the problems with the first award and ask for new proposals by February, said Heidi Valetkevitch, agency spokeswoman.
The agency plans to award the estimated nine-year, $128 million contract by the end of March and require the vendor to implement the system by November.
