STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1689
RE: H.B. No. 1067
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Ways and Means and Judiciary, to which was referred H.B. No. 1067, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PROCUREMENT FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to allow the President of the University of Hawaii to continue to act as the University's chief procurement officer for all procurement contracts under Chapter 103D, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
Specifically, this measure extends the sunset provision in Act 42, Session Laws of Hawaii 2018, from June 30, 2021, to June 30, 2024.
Your Committees received written comments in support of this measure from the University of Hawaii, Hawaii Construction Alliance, Hawaii Laborers & Employers Cooperation and Education Trust Fund, Hawaii Laborers' Union Local 368, and General Contractors Association of Hawaii.
Your Committees received written comments on this measure from Pacific Resource Partnership.
Your Committees find that Act 42, Session Laws of Hawaii 2018, which was enacted to allow the University of Hawaii to fully administer its own procurement, is scheduled to be repealed on June 30, 2021. Your Committees further find that this measure would extend that repeal date and allow the President of the University of Hawaii to act as the chief procurement officer for all procurements made by the University until June 30, 2024.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Ways and Means and Judiciary that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1067, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, and recommend that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Ways and Means and Judiciary,
KARL RHOADS, Chair
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
