STAND. COM. REP. NO.2574
RE: S.B. No. 2680
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 2680 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SCHOOL FACILITIES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to clarify the project specification requirements of state educational facilities repair and maintenance projects.
Specifically, this bill deletes the requirement to develop and maintain a qualified product list by model or catalog number, and instead allows project specifications to be written either as generic specifications or as prescriptive specifications without limiting the acceptable products.
Your Committee finds that this bill does not diminish the requirements of school repair and maintenance but allows more cost-effective and efficient processes to achieve similar results.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2680 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
BRIAN T. TANIGUCHI, Chair
