    (a) On or before November 15, 2001 and on or before November 15th of each year thereafter, the Board shall have the System's actuary prepare a report showing, on a fiscal year by fiscal year basis, the actual rate of participation in the self-managed plan authorized by Section 15-158.2, (i) by employees of the System's covered higher educational institutions who were hired on or after the implementation date of the self-managed plan and (ii) by other System participants.
    (b) On or before November 15th of 2001 and on or before November 15th of each year thereafter, the Illinois Board of Higher Education, in conjunction with the Bureau of the Budget (now Governor's Office of Management and Budget) shall prepare a report showing, on a fiscal year by fiscal year basis, the amount by which the costs associated with compensable sick leave have been reduced as a result of the termination of compensable sick leave accrual on and after January 1, 1998 by employees of higher education institutions who are participants in the System.
    (c) On or before November 15 of 2001 and on or before November 15th of each year thereafter, the Department of Central Management Services shall prepare a report showing, on a fiscal year by fiscal year basis, the amount by which the State's cost for health insurance coverage under the State Employees Group Insurance Act of 1971 for retirees of the State's universities and their survivors has declined as a result of requiring some of those retirees and survivors to contribute to the cost of their basic health insurance. These year-by-year reductions in cost must be quantified both in dollars and as a level percentage of payroll covered by the System.
    (d) The reports required under subsections (b) and (c) shall be disseminated to the Board, the Pension Laws Commission (until it ceases to exist), the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability, the Illinois Board of Higher Education, and the Governor.
    (e) The reports required under subsections (b) and (c) shall be taken into account by the Pension Laws Commission (or its successor, the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability) in making any recommendation to extend by legislation beyond December 31, 2002 the provision that allows a System participant to retire at any age with 30 or more years of service as authorized in Section 15-135.
