CONTRACTORS LICENSE: All prospective Bidders must be currently licensed by the State of Hawaii, Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, Division of Professional and Vocational Licensing.

"A" general engineering contractors and "B" general building contractors are reminded that due to the Hawaii Supreme Court’s January 28, 2002 decision in Okada Trucking Co., Ltd. v. Board of Water Supply, et al, 97 Haw. 450 (2002), they are prohibited from undertaking any work, solely or as part of a larger project, which would require the general contractor to act as a specialty contractor in any area where the general contractor has no license.  Although the "A" and "B" contractor may still bid on and act as the "prime" contractor on an "A" or "B" project (See, HRS § 444-7 for the definitions of an "A" or "B" project), respectively, the "A" and "B" contractor may only perform work in the areas in which they have the appropriate contractor’s license (An "A" or "B" contractor obtains "C" specialty contractor’s licenses either on its own or automatically under HAR § 16-77-32.).  The remaining work must be performed by appropriately licensed entities.  It is the sole responsibility of the contractor to review the requirements of this project and determine the appropriate licenses that are required to complete the project.
