Program Summary

    1990The Corps was directed to develop a plan to maintain and enhance public recreation opportunities at Corps water resource projects while reducing the Federal expenditures for recreation. A National Recreation Study was conducted, and findings from the study recommended establishing a nationwide campground reservation system.
    1995The four Federal agencies at the invitation of the Forest Service signed an Interagency Agreement that established the mandate to develop and implement an interagency National Recreation Reservation Service (NRRS). Under the broad guidance of the 1995-IA, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the USDA Forest Service proceeded to develop and implement the NRRS.
    1997The first interagency National Recreation Reservation Service contract was awarded to Park-Net Incorporated of Ballston Spa, NY, to provide joint recreation and reservation services to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the USDA Forest Service.
    1998The NRRS contract was successfully implemented with the go-live for the Call Center on 15 October 1998.
    2002Per OMB directive, the NRRS become the one-stop recreation reservation system for the public, and the NRRS was hereby designated as an executive agent for Government-wide acquisitions of information technology under Section 5112(e) of the Clinger-Cohen Act for recreation reservation systems. Subsequently, the NRRS became part of the DOI led Recreation One Stop, E-Government initiative.
    2003The Department of the Interior including the National Park Service (NPS), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service joined the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the USDA Forest Service in providing reservation services for recreation sites and facilities through the Nation Recreation Reservation Service (NRRS).
    2005A service contact was awarded to ReserveAmerica on June 17, 2005 to provide joint recreation and reservation services to provide joint recreation and reservation services to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, USDA Forest Service, and the Department of the Interior including the National Park Service (NPS), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
    2009A new interagency agreement was develop and signed to replace the previous 1995-IA and incorporate the alignment of management and operations associated with the Recreation One-Stop initiative and the NRRS.
    2015A Recreation One Stop (R1S) Request for Proposal (RFP) solicitation was posted on the fedBizOpps.gov website requesting proposals for the next generation recreation reservation services contract.
