VICTORIA – From checking-in campers to maintaining trails, Park Operators are key to quality service delivery in B.C.’s provincial parks. The Province is now looking for those interested in beginning a new adventure as a Park Operator.

Existing Park Operator contracts (including Wells Gray Park) will soon be up for renewal.

Proposals for these unique positions are now being accepted through 31 Requests for Proposals and 10 Invitations to Quote, which are posted on BC Bid (www.bcbid.ca). The opportunities will be open for bidding for approximately six weeks.

Many of British Columbia’s provincial campgrounds, day-use areas and backcountry facilities are operated and maintained by on-the-ground contractors. These Park Operators ensure BC Parks are well equipped to serve the needs of the 20 million people who visit provincial parks each year.

Park Operators typically look after more than one park, and enjoy the unique experiences of working outside providing the highest quality service in B.C.’s provincial parks.

Contracts will be awarded to successful proponents in fall 2014. RFP Agreements are 10 years in length, while ITQ Agreements are for three-year terms.
