Section 2 – Scope of Services

I. Information

A. Project overview and history

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) is seeking proposals from qualified agencies for Media Buying Services for the Communications Paia.

B. Funding source and period of availability

Funds are subject to the biennial budget as approved by the OHA Board of Trustees (BOT) and/or allocation by the Governor and State Legislature. Funding and period of availability may change upon written notice by the OHA.

It is understood that the contract will not be binding unless the OHA can document that there is an available and unexpended appropriation or balance of an appropriation over and above all outstanding contracts sufficient to cover the amount required by the contract. Any contract entered into as a result of this RFP is binding only to the extent that funds are certified as available and allocated and received by the OHA. The availability of funds in excess of the amount certified as available shall be contingent upon future appropriations or special fund revenues.

It has been determined that there are sufficient funds to pay for the initial term of the Contract and the funds necessary for the remaining term(s) of the Contract are likely to be available from the OHA. Pursuant to Chapter 103D-315, HRS, as amended, the OHA reserves the right to cancel the contract when future funds are not available to support continuation of performance in subsequent contract periods. Nothing in this RFP shall be interpreted to mean that the OHA shall be liable to pay for services provided.

II. General Requirements

A. Qualifying Requirements

1. The Offeror will comply with section HRS §103D-601, as amended, entitled “Cost Principles Rules Required.”

2. The Offeror must have no outstanding balances owing to the OHA. Exception may be granted by the CEO of the OHA for debts recently acquired and for debts for which a repayment plan has been approved by the CEO of the OHA.

3. Offerors are advised that if awarded a Contract, the Offeror must furnish proof of compliance with the requirements of Section §3-122-112, HAR.
