Deadline for Applications Extended for Nonprofit Partner to Coordinate USA’s 250th Anniversary Commemoration
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Interior has extended the deadline for applications to serve as secretariat of the United States Semiquincentennial Commission. The new deadline of February 28, 2018, provides nonprofit organizations an additional 60 days to submit an application. 

The commission was established by the U.S. Congress last year to coordinate and facilitate activities that will commemorate the 250th anniversary of the United States in 2026. The nonprofit will raise funds for the commission’s work, prepare reports required by Congress, and provide administrative and financial support to the commission. 

The commission, acting through the secretariat, will coordinate observances and activities related to the semiquincentennial, including special events, scholarly works, artistic displays, and historical exhibits. They will consult and cooperate with appropriate Federal agencies, State and local public bodies, learned societies, and historical, patriotic, philanthropic, civic, professional, and related organizations. 

The 33-member commission is comprised of eight members of Congress, 16 private citizens, and nine non-voting ex officio federal officials. The commission is required by law to submit a comprehensive report to the president no later than July 22, 2018, that includes the specific recommendations for the commemoration of the 250th anniversary and related events. 

Questions about this request for proposal can be submitted to NPS_BPC@nps.gov through January 19, 2017. A panel will evaluate the proposals and provide a recommendation to the Secretary of the Interior, who will make the final selection. 

More information regarding this opportunity and bid instructions are contained in the request for proposal informational document available at www.nps.gov/aboutus/doingbusinesswithus.htm.
