The NASED team hosted a market sounding webinar on Wednesday, June 14, 2023.
The intent of the market sounding webinar was to present the proposed approach for the project and answer initial questions from the audience.
Following the webinar, the state published a Request for Information (RFI) on the NASED website which sought feedback from prospective offerors. Sixteen written RFI responses were received, providing robust market feedback. The state then conducted a series of one-on-one meetings with RFI respondents and other parties to gain additional industry insights regarding the project.
The Market Sounding Report highlights outstanding issues the NASED project team is currently working to resolve with prospective offerors as we commence the procurement process by issuing the first stage of the request for proposals later this year.

Request For Information (RFI-2)
As part of the ongoing efforts for the NASED Market Sounding phase, the State of Hawaii, Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS) issued a second Request for Information (RFI-2) to help refine the procurement process to select a developer to deliver the NASED project. RFI-2 had several questions relating to the findings of the previously published Market Sounding Report.

The State has concluded Market Sounding for NASED.
