This description must include the scope and type of renderings, drawings, and specifications that, at a minimum, will be required by the Commission to be produced by the design-build entities.
    (c) The scope and performance criteria shall be prepared by a design professional who is an employee of the Commission, or the Commission may contract with an independent design professional selected under the Local Government Professional Services Selection Act (50 ILCS 510/) to provide these services.
    (d) The design professional that prepares the scope and performance criteria is prohibited from participating in any design-build entity proposal for the project.
