CUSTOMARY STANDARD PROPOSALS BY TRADES LIST
The Subcontractors Council has developed a Customary Standard Proposals by Trades list. The Council hopes the Customary Standard Proposals by Trades list will assist contractors and subcontractors to be familiar with customary work inclusions and exclusions by each trade. The list does not include all trades however and the Council looks forward to adding other trades to the list.
Please see attached Customary Standard Proposals by Trades list. Should you have any comment or would like to add other trades to the list, please contact Gladys Hagemann at Gladys@gcahawaii.org
The list of Customary Standard Proposals was developed as a guide only and should not be interpreted as an absolute list. click here to view and/or print the listINVITATION TO CONTRACTORS TO BE ON UH'S PRE-QUALIFIED CONTRACTOR LIST

ACT 17 (2009): APPRENTICESHIP PREFERENCE
The 2009 Legislature enacted Act 17 that took effect on July 15, 2009. Part of the Act states: A governmental body, as defined in section 106D-104, that enters into a public works contract under this chapter having an estimated value of not less than $250,000, shall decrease the bid amount of a bidder by five percent (5%) if the bidder is a party to an apprenticeship agreement registered with the department of labor…... (SB19 HD2). To date, we are not aware of any formal rules and regulations issued for Act 17 though periodically we hear certain departments may be working on them. It has come to our attention that some bidding contractors may be taking steps to use Act 17 pending issuance of any such rules and regulations. In view of this, the General Contractors Association of Hawaii (GCAH) would like to provide all of its members easy access to Act 17 for their information and use as each may deem appropriate.
