Under the new Leasing Reform policy, we have implemented a rotational field office schedule to review BLM administered parcels. Only parcels within the field ffices listed will be reviewed for the sale. Forest Service parcels are not subject to the rotational schedule and will be included on the first sale possible after a leasing recommendation is received.

REMINDER: If a parcel contains split estate lands, you must include the current surface owner(s) name and address. We will not process an EOI until this information is provided.

If you have any questions, please contact one of the Sale Leads listed above.

Guidelines For Submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI)

PLEASE NOTE:

Submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) prior to the cutoff date does not ensure the parcel will be included in the lease parcel review for the sale. If the parcel requires an action such as other surface management agency coordination or cadastral examination, the parcel will be withheld from the review process until all actions have been completed. You are encouraged to submit EOIs well in advance of the cutoff date.

The BLM will publish EOI submissions received on or after January 1, 2014, on the website of the BLM state office where the nominated parcel is located. EOI submitters who consider their name and address confidential should not include that information in their EOI. The BLM no longer requires submitters of EOIs to provide their name or address. Submitters may still provide this information for contact purposes; however, the BLM will make this information available to the public.

*The EOI cutoff date does not pertain to Forest Service (FS) parcels.

**Under the new Leasing Reform policy, we have implemented a rotational field office schedule to review BLM administered parcels. Only parcels within the field offices listed will be reviewed for the sale. Forest Service parcels are not subject to the rotational schedule and will be included on the first sale possible after a leasing recommendation is received.
