This project consists of grading and construction of roads and appurtenant utility improvements for a 121 lot residential subdivision in Laiopua, at Kealakehe.  This project consists of three portions:  (1) DHHL work, which consists of grading, constructing roadways and drainage systems, and installing traffic control and exterior electrical work; (2) Na Kupaa work, which consists of installing sewer and water systems; and (3) Sandwich Isle Communications (“SIC”) work, which consists of installing telecommunications infrastructure.

To be eligible to submit a bid, the Bidder and/or his subcontractors shall possess all required valid State of Hawaii licenses and specialty licenses needed to perform the work for this project.  A surety bid bond will be required for this IFB.

This project is subject to Section 103D, Hawaii Revised Statutes, and to the payment of not less than the prevailing salaries and wages promulgated by the State of Hawaii, Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.

It is in the best interests of the State for one contractor to be responsible for construction on the Project.  Therefore, a single bidder shall be selected to perform all three portions of work identified in the plans and specifications.  The winning responsive and responsible bidder shall have the lowest combined bid for all three portions of work.

The winning bidder shall be required to enter into three separate contracts for the Project: (1) a contract with the State of Hawaii, Department of Hawaiian Home Lands covering the DHHL Work; (2) a contract with Na Kupaa o Kuhio for the Na Kupaa Work; and (3) a contract with Sandwich Isle Communications for the SIC Work.  The contract amounts shall be as set forth in the bids for those respective portions of work.  The contracts shall be in forms substantially similar to those included in the bid documents, subject to any additional State and Federal requirements that may apply.
