FOUNDED IN 1859 BY QUEEN EMMA AND KING KAMEHAMEHA IV
For more than 160 years, Queen’s has been on the cutting edge of advancements in health care. That’s one reason why the people of Hawai‘i and the Pacific Basin have entrusted us with their care. We have a legacy that is deeply woven into the culture of our communities – one of compassion, aloha, respect and excellence.
Queen’s is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of Native Hawaiians and all of the people of Hawai‘i by engaging in groundbreaking research.
We will accomplish this mission through education, research and professional development by creating novel approaches to improve patient outcomes and care delivery, become a national leader in reducing health inequities among Native Hawaiians, and empowering individuals and communities by engaging in bi-directional learning. Our service is extended in the spirt of aloha as guided by the vision and ideals of our founders Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV.
RE: DECLARATION OF PROCUREMENT STANDARDS
The Queen’s Medical Center (QMC) hereby elects to utilize the grace period established in the Office of Management & Budget Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards; final Rule – 2 CFR Chapter I, Chapter II, Part 200, et al. also known as the Uniform Guidance (UG) for July 1, 2015 (FY 16) and continue use of Circular A-110.
Excerpt from § 200.110 (a): “For the procurement standards in §§ 200.317 – 200.326, non-Federal entities may continue to comply with the procurement standards in previous OMB guidance (superseded by this part as described in § 200.104) for two additional fiscal years after this part goes into effect. If a non-Federal entity chooses to use the previous procurement standards for two additional fiscal years before adopting the procurement standards in this part, the non-Federal entity must document this decision in their internal procurement policies.”
In the meantime, QMC shall modify and develop procurement procedures to become consistent with the Uniform Guidance. QMC shall be in compliance with the UG effective July 1, 2018 (FY 19).
