RFPs

Request for Proposals

HTA regularly issues open solicitations – Requests for Proposals (RFP), Requests for Qualifications (RFQ) and Invitations for Bids (IFB) – to secure professional services from qualified contractors in support of HTA’s mission on behalf of the State of Hawaii.

HTA is committed to a solicitation process that is comprehensive, fair and impartial. The process is overseen by an attorney trained in government procurement and contracts. All applicants are subject to the same rules and restrictions to ensure the integrity of the process. Evaluator identities are kept confidential during the procurement process, and individual evaluator scores are not shared in order to avoid undue influence. Proposal requirements and the steps in the evaluation process are explained in detail to prospective applicants, and the applicants who do not win are provided with their final evaluation score breakdown in comparison with the winning score in order to provide context and to ensure transparency. Through its commitment to integrity and transparency, the HTA is able to gain trust in the vendor community thus increasing competition, resulting in better quality and value for the State of Hawaii.

HTA is now utilizing an online application process through the eCivis contract management system.  All applications in response to HTA’s solicitations must be completed and submitted via eCivis.  An Application Submission Guide and instructional video are provided for your use.
