Pacific Region Training Initiative (PRTI) Request for Proposal
Fri, 11/04/2011 - 12:00pm

This announcement is issued by the Pacific International Center for High Technology Research (PICHTR), under agreement with the Research Corporation of the University of Hawaii (RCUH), for the execution of the Pacific Region Training Initiative (PRTI).  In accordance with requirements for the program, PICHTR is soliciting proposals to host courses and train-the-trainer courses, which will be vetted with the State Administrative Agencies (SAA’s), and selected from the NTED catalog.  In total, the contractor will be involved with 20 deliveries of approved courses training 350 people.  Our goal will be to train 2 people from various island communities who will, after being certified, be available to teach the courses.  The training courses have been part of the ongoing discussions with the SAA’s and the FEMA Pacific Area Office over the past 6 months.  These courses are, however, preliminary selections and will be finalized after more discussion with the SAA’s and FEMA’s approval.

PICHTR anticipates that initial contractor selection will be made by November 15, 2011 from submissions received by PICHTR in Honolulu, Hawaii by 12 PM Noon, Hawaii Standard Time, on November 4, 2011. Note that the submission must be in the physical possession of PICHTR prior to the posted deadline.

Proposal should be received electronically through e-mail to, U.S. mail, or courier according to other procedures outlined in this document.  The submissions shall be prepared in PDF format. 

PICHTR reserves the right to reject any or all Proposals received in response to this RFP at any time prior to the execution of the Contract.  PICHTR also reserves the right to negotiate with the selected offeror in the event that the price exceeds available funds.  Issuance of this RFP in no way constitutes a commitment by PICHTR to award a contract.
