    (Section scheduled to be repealed on July 1, 2025)
    Sec. 20.15. Submission of design-build proposals. Design-build proposals must be properly identified and sealed. Proposals may not be reviewed until after the deadline for submission has passed as set forth in the request for proposals. All design-build entities submitting proposals shall be disclosed after the deadline for submission, and all design-build entities who are selected for Phase II evaluation shall also be disclosed at the time of that determination.
    Phase II design-build proposals shall include a bid bond in the form and security as designated in the request for proposals. Proposals shall also contain a separate sealed envelope with the cost information within the overall proposal submission. Proposals shall include a list of all design professionals and other entities to which any work identified in Section 30-30 of the Illinois Procurement Code as a subdivision of construction work may be subcontracted during the performance of the contract.
    Proposals must meet all material requirements of the request for proposal or they may be rejected as non-responsive. The Commission shall have the right to reject any and all proposals.
    The drawings and specifications of any unsuccessful design-build proposal shall remain the property of the design-build entity.
    The Commission shall review the proposals for compliance with the performance criteria and evaluation factors.
    Proposals may be withdrawn prior to the due date and time for submissions for any cause. After evaluation begins by the Commission, clear and convincing evidence of error is required for withdrawal.
    This Section is repealed on July 1, 2025; provided that any design-build contracts entered into before such date or any procurement of a project under this Act commenced before such date, and the contracts resulting from those procurements, shall remain effective.
