(30 ILCS 537/5)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on July 1, 2022)
    Sec. 5. Legislative policy. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the Capital Development Board be allowed to use the design-build delivery method for public projects if it is shown to be in the State's best interest for that particular project. It shall be the policy of the Capital Development Board in the procurement of design-build services to publicly announce all requirements for design-build services and to procure these services on the basis of demonstrated competence and qualifications and with due regard for the principles of competitive selection.
    The Capital Development Board shall, prior to issuing requests for proposals, promulgate and publish procedures for the solicitation and award of contracts pursuant to this Act.
    The Capital Development Board shall, for each public project or projects permitted under this Act, make a written determination, including a description as to the particular advantages of the design-build procurement method, that it is in the best interests of this State to enter into a design-build contract for the project or projects. In making that determination, the following factors shall be considered:
        (1) The probability that the design-build procurement
method will be in the best interests of the State by providing a material savings of time or cost over the design-bid-build or other delivery system.
        (2) The type and size of the project and its
suitability to the design-build procurement method.
        (3) The ability of the State construction agency to
define and provide comprehensive scope and performance criteria for the project.
    No State construction agency may use a design-build procurement method unless the agency determines in writing that the project will comply with the disadvantaged business and equal employment practices of the State as established in the Business Enterprise for Minorities, Women, and Persons with Disabilities Act and Section 2-105 of the Illinois Human Rights Act.
    The Capital Development Board shall within 15 days after the initial determination provide an advisory copy to the Procurement Policy Board and maintain the full record of determination for 5 years.
