At Hawaii Information Consortium, LLC., our sole focus is to build, manage, and maintain electronic government solutions and the eHawaii.gov State portal and official website for the State of Hawaii. Our goal is to make interacting with the government easier for the public by bringing services online and improving government efficiency. eHawaii.gov was initially launched in 2000. Since then over 90 web-based applications have been deployed and over 2.5 million citizens come to our site annually. View the full list of our services. While we operate as a for-profit company, state agencies, counties and local government can in many cases, work with us at no cost by utilizing our unique self funded model.
Located in downtown Honolulu we employ 32 full time staff members.

Oversight of Our Operation
The twentieth Legislature, in 2000 passed Act 292 establishing the Access Hawaii Committee (AHC) to oversee the state of Hawaii’s internet portal activities.
Pursuant to Act 292, the AHC coordinates the activities of HIC and the departments and agencies that utilize the Portal. The committee provides oversight of the portal manager including:
