RFP-13-HHL-001 – In accordance with Chapter 171 HRS, the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) invites your written proposal for a koa (acacia koa) salvage and reforestation land license on 498 acres, more or less, located in Humuula, Island of Hawaii.

Gross volume estimates for this area range from 3,000 to 6,000 board-feet per acre. Proposers should conduct their own volumetric determinations before submitting their proposal. Those familiar with harvesting and milling koa understand that net volumes of wood recovered from any given koa tree can be significantly less than the estimated gross volume for that tree.

A pre-proposal conference and site visit is scheduled for July 27, 2012 at 9 a.m. at the Humuula sheep station located approximately 0.8 miles north of the Saddle Road/Mauna Kea Summit Road intersection. Attendance at the conference is not required, but is encouraged. Written proposals must be received by DHHL no later than 4:30 p.m. on August 29, 2012.

A copy of the Request for Proposal may be obtained by calling Mike Robinson at (808) 933-3480, or may be downloaded at www.hawaii.gov/spo/notices/, or at dhhl.hawaii.gov/procurement/, or by writing to DHHL at 160 Baker Street, Hilo, Hawaii 96720.
