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.

    (105 ILCS 5/19b-5) (from Ch. 122, par. 19b-5)
    Sec. 19b-5. Installment payment contract; lease purchase agreement. A school district or school districts in combination or an area vocational center may enter into an installment payment contract or lease purchase agreement with a qualified provider or with a third party, as authorized by law, for the funding or financing of the purchase and installation of energy conservation measures by a qualified provider. Every school district or area vocational center may issue certificates evidencing the indebtedness incurred pursuant to the contracts or agreements. Any such contract or agreement shall be valid whether or not an appropriation with respect thereto is first included in any annual or supplemental budget adopted by the school district or area vocational center. Each contract or agreement entered into by a school district or area vocational center pursuant to this Section shall be authorized by official action of the school board or governing board of the area vocational center, whichever is applicable. The authority granted in this Section is in addition to any other authority granted by law.
    If an energy audit is performed by an energy services contractor for a school district within the 3 years immediately preceding the solicitation, then the school district must publish as a reference document in the solicitation for energy conservation measures the following:
        (1) an executive summary of the energy audit provided
    
that the school district may exclude any proprietary or trademarked information or practices; or
        (2) the energy audit provided that the school
    
district may redact any proprietary or trademarked information or practices.
A school district may not withhold the disclosure of information related to (i) the school district's consumption of energy, (ii) the physical condition of the school district's facilities, and (iii) any limitations prescribed by the school district.
    The solicitation must include a written disclosure that identifies any energy services contractor that participated in the preparation of the specifications issued by the school district. If no energy services contractor participated in the preparation of the specifications issued by the school district, then the solicitation must include a written disclosure that no energy services contractor participated in the preparation of the specifications for the school district. The written disclosure shall be published in the Capital Development Board Procurement Bulletin with the Request for Proposal.
