STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2063
RE: H.B. No. 1146
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.B. No. 1146, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PROCUREMENT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to increase efficiency and accountability in state procurement.
Specifically, this measure:
(1) Requires contracting officers to complete past performance evaluations of contractors;
(2) Requires that past performance be considered in:
(A) Sole source procurements; and
(B) Procurements by competitive sealed bids or competitive sealed proposals that meet or exceed the small purchase threshold;
(3) Establishes an initial procurement working group; and
(4) Appropriates funds to:
(A) Develop and create a statewide past performance database; and
(B) Outsource two full-time equivalent positions.
Your Committee did not receive any written comments on this measure.
Your Committee finds that requiring past performance evaluations of contractors will inform future contacting agencies of contractor performance and allow the State to conduct procurement more efficiently.
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 H.B. No. 1146, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
