Is HIePRO being used for all solicitations? Can vendors stop checking the procurement notices website?

Posted on Mar 6, 2013 in HIePRO.

HIePRO is required for small purchase requests for quotes for goods, services and construction from $15,000 and above pursuant to HRS Chapter 103D, for the executive branch, the Judiciary and Hawaii Health Systems Corporation.  Some agencies are also using HIePRO for Invitation for Bids. The State Procurement Office (SPO) conducts all solicitations on HIePRO including Invitation for Bids (IFBs) and Requests for Proposals (RFPs).

Not all CPO Jurisdictions (Jurisdictions with their own Chief Procurement Officer pursuant to HRS Section 103D-203) utilize HIePRO.  Vendors should continue to check the procurement notices website for procurement notices of:

  • (Invitations for Bids) IFBs,
  • (Requests for Proposals) RFPs, and
  • Professional service method of source selection pursuant HRS Section 103D-304 and HAR 3-122, Subchapter 7.
