Last year Bank of Hawaii’s donation was used to co-sponsor, along with the Chamber, the Guam Bar Association and the Guam Judiciary, a series of seminars and lecturers by Professor Steven Schooner from George Washington University.
Brown announced that this year’s visiting procurement expert will be Professor Danielle M. Conway. Professor Conway is the Michael J. Marks Distinguished Professor of Business Law and director of the University of Hawai’i Procurement Institute at the William S. Richardson School of Law, with more than 16 years experience practicing and teaching procurement. She is the author of “State and Local Government Procurement”, recently published by the American Bar Association.
Professor Conway earned her J.D. law degree cum laude from Howard University and her LL.M. from the George Washington University Law School. She is a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve, and has served as an Assistant Counsel for Procurement at the Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the Office of the Chief Counsel’s Honors Program.
Brown said the program this year will include a full day seminar on Monday, July 23, with topics to include such matters as procurement planning and needs assessment, market research and effective specification, contract administration, and infrastructure procurement.
Brown said, in cooperation with the Guam Procurement Advisory Council, a second half day seminar will be held on Tuesday, July 24 and address topics such as procurement ethics, contract basics for procurement practitioners and Hawaii’s experience and lessons learned with its Procurement Advisory Council and Procurement Institute.
Professor Conway also intends to address students at GCC and UOG about the opportunities for education and careers in private and public procurement, and meet with faculty and staff in a roundtable discussion about possibilities and requirements for a Guam Procurement Institute the morning of Tuesday, July 24.
Professor Conway will address the monthly General Membership Meeting of the Guam Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, July 25. Brown has asked that she offer her perspective on Hawaii’s “Buy Local” policies, law and practices. Brown said CLE credits for lawyers will be available and that more details will be forthcoming.
