RFP for Oklahoma State Parks Restaurants Closed, Multiple Responses Received
OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department (OTRD) received multiple responses following the Request for Proposals (RFP) for restaurant services at six state park locations.
Seven responses were received, and evaluations are currently underway. A team of evaluators is carefully assessing each proposal to ensure that the selected vendor(s) meet the needs of the department and park visitors.
"The agency executed a plan to build interest for the restaurants both in our state and beyond our borders, and given the tremendous response I’m confident that our evaluators will find the right fit for Oklahoma," said OTRD Executive Director Shelley Zumwalt. "With this important milestone complete, we're one step closer to improving the visitor experience in these parks and attracting more visitors to the surrounding communities."
The Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) issued the RFP, which followed OTRD’s Request for Information (RFI) and open houses in January that engaged potential vendors.
Interested parties had until Friday, March 3, at 3 p.m. to submit their RFP responses. The solicitation details can be found on the OMES website.
