contract (i) is entered into by
a unit of local government or school district, (ii) is not procured in
accordance with the Illinois Procurement Code and the State Finance Act, and
(iii) authorizes or necessitates any increase in the contract price that is 50%
or more of the
original contract price or that authorizes or necessitates any increase in the price of a subcontract under the contract that is 50% or more of the original subcontract price, then the portion of the contract that is covered by the
