Hawaii Vendor Compliance Site Wins Top Honors from the International Association of Commercial Administrators.

HONOLULU -- The state of Hawaii's vendor compliance Web site, Hawaii Compliance (, has won the 2006 Win-Win Award from the International Association of Commercial Administrators (IACA). Hawaii Compliance Express uniquely fit IACA's "Partnering for Peak Performance" annual conference theme because it links four state agencies, one federal agency, and thousands of vendors who do business with Hawaii state and county governments. The award was presented to representatives of the state of Hawaii at the IACA annual conference in Lake Tahoe on May 16.

Hawaii Compliance Express was designed to comply with state legislation that requires any business wishing to contract with the state of Hawaii or its four counties to demonstrate compliance with state laws. The site provides an easy way for businesses to meet the state's compliance requirements online and issues a certificate of good standing that can be used during the procurement process.

Hawaii's vendor compliance system eliminates the need to fill out hard copy forms or wait in line at government agencies. In addition, Hawaii Business Express notifies vendors when they drop out of compliance at any time.

No other state has an online method of complying with state procurement regulations that spans local, state, and federal agencies. Hawaii Compliance Express revolutionizes business-to-government interaction by improving efficiencies for state agencies, businesses, and government buyers.

Hawaii Compliance Express was developed at part of the state's overall campaign to improve efficiency by implementing electronic government services. The state's official Web site ( currently offers more than 30 online applications that residents, businesses, and visitors may use to conduct business with the state government via the Internet.
