Outdoor recreation contributes more than $12B to the economy, employs more than 122,000 people and is the primary driver behind the tourism industry. Not only does Utah outdoor recreation create $856 million in state and local tax revenues, it is the reason for $3.6B in wages and salaries*. Governor Herbert created Utah’s Office of Outdoor Recreation January 2013 as a result of the large contribution the industry plays in Utah’s economy. It is the first office of its kind in the country.

Our office aims to establish a nationwide recreation management standard, and ensure that the state’s natural assets can sustain economic growth for years to come. The private sector is a key partner in Utah’s success, and our state is committed to responsibly partnering with the business community.

Utah National Guard Business Contracting Outreach

The Utah National Guard has a unique dual mission that encompasses support to our nation and to the state of Utah. Nationally, their mission is to maintain properly trained and equipped units available for prompt mobilization for war, national emergency or as otherwise needed. For the state of Utah, they provide trained and disciplined forces for domestic emergencies or as otherwise required by state law.

The Utah National Guard spent $71.9 million of federal funds in FY 2018. This consisted of contracts for operations, maintenance, construction, and remodeling. In addition to the federal funds, the Guard also spent $9.3 million of state funds for those same type of requirements. In total, the Utah National Guard spent over $357.7 million in federal and state funding for these requirements and payroll. Come join us as Carlos Ledezma, Chief of Contracting for the Utah National Guard will provide an outreach on the mission of the Guard with current and upcoming requirements available for Utah businesses to compete for. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the presentation is from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. There is no fee to attend, but registration is required. Register here.
