What are procurement circulars and procurement directives?

Posted on Jan 8, 2014 in For State Personnel.

Issued by the Chief Procurement Officers, procurement circulars provide more information or clarification on procedures in Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS) or Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR).  They are updated as needed.  Part of the responsibilities of delegated procurement authority, is to ensure you are up to date on all procurement requirements.  Check the procurement circulars each time you procure.

Procurement Directives are issued by the Procurement Policy Board to transmit the Hawaii Administrative Rules and policies.
