The State of Hawaii has released a Request for Interest (RFI) concerning the planned development of a new Oahu Community Correctional Center (OCCC). OCCC, operated by the Department of Public Safety (PSD), is beset by a declining physical plant and a lack of space for inmate programs and services. A new facility is needed to meet current and future requirements. Assisting PSD is the Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS) which issued the RFI to determine interest in a possible future procurement. The information, input, and expressions of interest received from respondents to the RFI will refine assumptions and expectations regarding the planning, procurement and eventual delivery of the new OCCC.
The RFI and additional project-related information is available on the OCCC Future Plans website (http://dps.hawaii.gov/occc-future-plans/). The RFI is not intended to initiate a solicitation for OCCC development nor does it represent a commitment by the State of Hawaii to proceed with a solicitation in the future. Responses to this RFI are not a prerequisite to participating in future solicitations and do not constitute a commitment to include Respondent firms in latter stages of the process. Responses to this RFI are the sole method by which expressions of interest concerning the new OCCC will be considered.
