Who Are We?

At Hawaii Information Consortium (HIC), our goal is to bring government services to the people. Our sole focus is build digital government services, most of which are completed at NO cost to the state of Hawaii or its taxpayers. 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. We also manage the official website for the state of Hawaii,
