Starting Tuesday, September 3, 2019, the Board of Water Supply (BWS) is moving all its notifications for competitive sealed bids and proposals from its BWS Procurement Website to the Hawaii e-Procurement System (HePS),

  • This move applies only to BWS sealed bids and proposals for goods, services and construction as described in sections 103D-302 and 103D-303 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes.
  • BWS notices for sole source, exemption, and professional services contracts will continue to be posted on the BWS's Procurement Website at

Vendor Registration

if you already have a HePS account on either the Hawaii Department of Education (DOE) or the University of Hawaii System (UH), you DO NOT have to register again. However, you may want to update your profile to ensure that all applicable commodity codes are selected.

If you do not already have a HePS account, you will need to register online at and select the commodity codes of goods, services, or construction you provide. The BWS has posted instructional videos that will introduce vendors to the HePS system and demonstrate how to register in and use the system. The videos are posted on the BWS website at
