Sunshine Memo 09-10
February 20, 2009
Amended Agenda and Adequate Notice

A member of the public asked OIP to investigate whether the State Procurement Policy Board properly noticed a meeting. Specifically, he asked whether the agenda, entitled “Amended Agenda,” provided sufficient notice for the Board’s discussion and action on a petition of Akaku, Maui Community Television.

OIP reviewed the language of the agenda and concluded that the Amended Agenda sufficiently detailed the Akaku petition to apprise the public of the Board’s meeting topics. However, because the title “Amended Agenda” may have been misleading OIP recommended against the use of “amended” agendas.
