Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (b) All contracts involving less than $10,000 shall be let by competitive bidding to the lowest responsible bidder whenever possible and, in any event, in a manner calculated to ensure the best interests of the public. Competitive bidding is not required for the lease of real estate or buildings owned or controlled by the Authority. The Board is empowered to offer those leases upon terms it deems advisable.
    (c) In determining the responsibility of any bidder, the Board may take into account the past records of dealings with the bidder, the bidder's experience, adequacy of equipment, and ability to complete performance within the time set, and other factors besides financial responsibility, but in no case shall any contracts be awarded to any other than the highest bidder (in case of sale, concession, or lease) or the lowest bidder (in case of purchase or expenditure) unless authorized or approved by a vote of at least 5 members of the Board and unless the action is accompanied by a statement in writing setting forth the reasons for not awarding the contract to the highest or lowest bidder, as the case may be, which statement shall be kept on file in the principal office of the Authority and open to public inspection.

    (e) The Board shall have the right to reject all bids and to readvertise for bids. If no responsible and satisfactory bid within the terms of the advertisement is received, the Board may award the contract without competitive bidding if the contract is not less advantageous to the Authority than any valid bid received in response to advertisement.
    (f) The Board shall adopt rules and regulations to carry into effect the provisions of this Section.
