Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes. In provisions creating the Department of Innovation and Technology Act: Adds a definition of "State agency" and "legacy information technology division". Provides that the status and rights of the employees and the State of Illinois, or its transferring agencies, under the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act shall not be affected by the Act. Provides that under the direction of the Governor, the Secretary, in consultation with the transferring agencies and labor organizations representing the affected employees, shall identify each position and employee who is engaged in the performance of functions transferred to the Department, or engaged in the administration of a law the administration of which is transferred to the Department, to be transferred to the Department. Provides that an employee engaged primarily in providing administrative support to a legacy information technology division or information technology personnel may be considered engaged in the performance of functions transferred to the Department. Deletes language that provides that to the extent that an employee performs duties for the dedicated unit, information technology functions, and duties for the transferring agency itself or any other division or agency within the transferring agency that are dedicated to non-information technology functions, that employee shall be transferred at the Governor's discretion. Provides that the Department shall, when requested and when in the best interest of the State, provide for, coordinate, and establish charges for information technology for State constitutional offices. Excludes State constitutional offices from a provision relating to the Department providing for and coordinating communications services. Specifies that the Department has the power to examine the accounts and information technology-related data of a State constitutional office when requested by that office. In provisions amending the Illinois Century Network Act, removes changes to the Illinois Century Network Policy Committee, and instead abolishes the Committee. Provides that the Department of Innovation and Technology shall govern the staffing and contractual services necessary to support the activities of the Illinois Century Network. Further amends the Illinois Century Network Act. Makes additional legislative findings. Provides that the Illinois Century Network shall provide reliable communication links for wholesale connections with other registered or certified providers and the direct communication needs of anchor institutions (rather than provide reliable communication links to and among various institutions). Provides that the Network may (rather than shall) build on existing investments. Requires the Department to perform a comprehensive review of the Network by July 1, 2018. Defines "anchor institutions". In the State Finance Act, restores language pertaining to transfers from the Secretary of State Special Services Fund to the Statistical Services Revolving Fund and changes a reference from "Statistical Services Revolving Fund" to "Technology Management Revolving Fund".

Allows the State to lease State-owned dark fiber networks to third parties for any period not exceeding 20 years. Limits the usage of dark fiber network leases. Provides that dark fiber network lease contracts shall be subject to other requirements of the Code. Makes grammatical, stylistic, and other changes. Effective immediately.
