Sir:

     Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No.
985 entitled: 

     "A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PROCUREMENT,"

begs leave to report as follows:

     The purpose of this bill is to improve consistency between
the Hawaii Public Procurement Code (Code) and other provisions of
the Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS) by:

     (1)  Bringing the HRS provisions into compliance with the
          Code; and

     (2)  Consolidating and clarifying sections of the Code.

     The State Procurement Office submitted testified in support
of this measure.

     Your Committee has made technical, nonsubstantive amendments
to conform to correct drafting style.

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your
Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your
Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No.
985, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second
Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 985, H.D. 1, and
be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
