Procurement Exempt From Competition

There are situations where procurement of goods and services by competitive means is neither practicable nor advantageous to the County. In such event, Hawaii Revised Statutes 103D-210 permits exemption form competitive means.

Examples of procurement exempt from competition are:
  • Services of expert witnesses, lecturers, and speakers
  • Repair services when dismantling is required to assess the extent of repairs
  • Used items which are advantageous and available on short notice
