OTG’s Rapid Transit Claim Made Public
The OIP advised the City and County of Honolulu to make public a two-volume claim filed against the City by Oahu Transit Group Joint Venture (OTG). The materials supported OTG’s claims against the City in connection with the City’s termination of the Rapid Transit Development Project contract. The OIP concluded that OTG had failed to specify, in non-conclusory terms, how disclosure of its claim would result in substantial competitive harm, and there was no indication that disclosure of the claim would result in the frustration of a legitimate government function.
