Possible Business Opportunity

I am new to the boating forum So hello to all. I do some government contracting and there is currently a contract with the department of the interior for Boat trips on the colorado thru grand canyon. Both paddle and motor upto 21 days. Geological survey trips. I have knowledge in gov contracts and the process, but not river boating. Anybody own or run a rafting company with the experience required for the grand canyon that might want to team up. Sounds like a great way to make a living. Drop me a line if interested.

Hi Javaman,

This sound great in principle -- putting together a company on the fly to bid on this contract. As you might guess, there are already well-established outfits that have competed in this arena and held this contract before. The one I'm thinking of in particular has all the necessary equipment and experienced personnel at hand, and knows the river and Park operations rather intimately.

I absolutely am not trying to discourage you or anyone else from putting together a bid package. But you should know that the competition will be pretty stiff. They will be able to demonstrate a tremendous amount of Grand Canyon river knowledge and experience in this kind of support operations (such as research, science, and even movie trips), which surely will be part of the evaluative criteria.

So if you do it, put together your team and your response to the request with that in mind.

Thanks for the reply,

I was hoping to find a reputable company already in the business that might want to partner up. If they are not in the government bidding process that is where I can help. There is no way I could could put a team together from scratch. I know it is a long shot , but hey got to throw it out there.
