The National Park Service (NPS) is issuing a concessions prospectus on Thursday, August 8, 2019, for a 10-year concession contract for food and beverage, retail and event services at Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island. The new contract is expected to be effective November 1, 2020. The Deputy Director, Exercising the Authority of the Director, pursuant to 36 CFR Part 51, has determined that no preferred Offeror for this contract exists.

The people of France gave the Statue of Liberty as a gift of friendship to the people of the United States. Located on Liberty Island, this universal symbol of freedom and democracy was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a national monument in 1924, and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986.

Ellis Island opened on January 1, 1892 and became the nation's leading federal immigration station. The station operated until 1954 and processed more than 12 million immigrant steamship passengers. Restored after nearly 30 years of closure, Ellis Island's Main Building opened as a museum on September 10, 1990. Today, about 40% of the United States' population can trace its ancestry through Ellis Island. For additional information, visit the websites for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The NPS depends on its concessioners to meet the needs of over four and one half million visitors annually.
