Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Procurement Code. Provides that the Procurement Policy Board shall provide written notice of an alleged conflict of interest to the contractor. Provides that the contractor shall have 30 days to provide a written response to the notice and may request a hearing before the Board. Provides that a State contract may be awarded as a sole source procurement unless a vendor requests a public hearing (rather than, a State contract may not be awarded as a sole source procurement unless approved by the chief procurement officer following a public hearing). Provides that a State contract shall include the general type of work to be performed by all known subcontractors (rather than the expected amount of money the subcontractor will receive under the contract). Provides that the chief procurement officer shall verify the status of a business entity's certificate of registration with the State Board of Elections through the Board's website (rather than, a copy of the certificate of registration must accompany any bid or proposal). Provides that, for certain certifications required for State contracts, if a false certification is made by a subcontractor, the contractor's submitted bid and contract may not be declared void, unless the contractor refuses to terminate the subcontract. Makes changes to a provision concerning procurement communications reporting requirements. Effective immediately.
