Okay, I think I have found what you are looking for. Thanks for your patience. See below (subsection (f)).
Hawaii Admin. Rules § 3-122-16.05 Pre-bid or pre-proposal conference.
(a) The purpose of a pre-bid or pre-proposal conference is to explain the procurement requirements and allow potential offerors to ask questions.
- (1) An agency may hold a pre-bid or pre-proposal conference and require or not require attendance by all prospective bidders as a condition for submitting an offer for solicitations that have special or unusual requirements, e.g., requiring physical inspection.
- (2) For construction, including design-build projects, pursuant to section 103D-303.5, HRS, an agency shall hold a pre-bid or preproposal conference and invite all interested parties to attend.
(b) If conference attendance is mandatory for submission of an offer, the requirement:
- (1) Shall be stated in the public notice issued pursuant to section 3-122 16.03; and
- (2) Prominently in the solicitation or if the decision to hold a mandatory pre-bid or preproposal conference is made after the issuance of the solicitation, the mandatory requirement shall be announced in an addendum.
(c) A pre-bid or pre-proposal conference shall be announced to all prospective offerors in the public notice issued pursuant to section 3-122 16.03 and in the solicitation, or if the decision to hold a pre-bid or pre-proposal conference is made after the issuance of the solicitation, the conference shall be announced in an addendum.
(d) The conference should be held long enough after the solicitation has been issued to allow offerors to become familiar with the solicitation, but sufficiently before the deadline for receipt of offers to allow consideration of the conference results in preparing their offers.
(e) Unless a change is made by written addendum as provided in section 3 122-16.06, nothing stated at the pre-bid or pre-proposal conference shall change the solicitation.
(f) A summary of the conference, in addition to any changes to the solicitation, shall be issued by deadline for receipt of offers to allow consideration of the summary results and changes to all those prospective offerors known to have received a solicitation.
