Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.
70 ILCS 3615/4.06
(70 ILCS 3615/4.06)
(from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 704.06)
(a) The Board shall adopt regulations to ensure
that the acquisition by the Authority or a Service Board
other than the Chicago Transit Authority of services or public
transportation facilities (other than real estate) involving a cost of more
than the small purchase threshold set by the Federal Transit Administration and the disposition of all property of the Authority or a
Service Board other than the Chicago Transit Authority shall be after
public notice and with public bidding. The Board shall adopt regulations to ensure that the construction, demolition, rehabilitation, renovation, and building maintenance projects by the Authority or a Service Board other than the Chicago Transit Authority for services or public transportation facilities involving a cost of more than $40,000 shall be after public notice and with public bidding. Such regulations may provide for
exceptions to such requirements for acquisition of repair parts, accessories,
equipment or services previously furnished or contracted for; for the
immediate delivery of supplies, material or equipment or performance of
service when it is determined by the concurrence of two-thirds of the then
Directors that an emergency requires immediate delivery or supply thereof;
for goods or services that are economically procurable from only one
source; for contracts for the maintenance or servicing of equipment which
are made with the manufacturers or authorized service agent of that
equipment where the maintenance or servicing can best be performed by the
manufacturer or authorized service agent or such a contract would be
otherwise advantageous to the Authority or a Service Board, other
than the Chicago Transit Authority, except that the exceptions in this
clause shall not apply to contracts for plumbing, heating, piping,
refrigeration and automatic temperature control systems, ventilating and
distribution systems for conditioned air, and electrical wiring; for goods
or services procured from another governmental agency; for purchases and
contracts for the use or purchase of data processing equipment and data
processing systems software; for the acquisition of professional or
utility services; and for the acquisition of public transportation
equipment including, but not limited to, rolling stock, locomotives and
buses, provided that: (i) it is determined by a vote of 2/3 of the then
Directors of the Service Board making the acquisition that a negotiated
acquisition offers opportunities with respect to the cost or financing of
the equipment, its delivery, or the performance of a portion of the work
within the State or the use of goods produced or
services provided within the State; (ii) a notice of intention to negotiate
for the acquisition of such public transportation equipment is published in
a newspaper of general circulation within the City of Chicago inviting
proposals from qualified vendors; and (iii) any contract with respect to
such acquisition is authorized by a vote of 2/3 of the then Directors of
the Service Board making the acquisition. The requirements set forth
in this Section shall not apply to purchase of service
agreements or other
contracts, purchases or sales entered into by the Authority with any
transportation agency or unit of local government.
(b) (1) In connection with two-phase design/build selection procedures
authorized in this Section, a Service Board may authorize, by
the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the then members of the
Service Board, the use of competitive selection and the prequalification of
responsible bidders consistent with applicable federal regulations and this
(2) Two-phase design/build selection procedures shall
consist of the following:
(i) A Service Board shall develop, through
licensed architects or licensed engineers, a scope of work statement for inclusion in the solicitation for phase-one proposals that defines the project and provides prospective offerors with sufficient information regarding the Service Board's requirements. The statement shall include criteria and preliminary design, and general budget parameters and general schedule or delivery requirements to enable the offerors to submit proposals which meet the Service Board's needs. When the two-phase design/build selection procedure is used and the Service Board contracts for development of the scope of work statement, the Service Board shall contract for architectural or engineering services as defined by and in accordance with the Architectural, Engineering, and Land Surveying Qualifications Based Selection Act and all applicable licensing statutes.
(ii) The evaluation factors to be used in
evaluating phase-one proposals must be stated in the solicitation and must include specialized experience and technical competence, capability to perform, past performance of the offeror's team (including the architect-engineer and construction members of the team) and other appropriate technical and qualifications factors. Each solicitation must establish the relative importance assigned to the evaluation factors and the subfactors that must be considered in the evaluation of phase-one proposals on the basis of the evaluation factors set forth in the solicitation. Each design/build team must include a licensed design professional independent from the Service Board's licensed architect or engineer and a licensed design professional must be named in the phase-one proposals submitted to the Service Board.
(iii) On the basis of the phase-one proposal the
Service Board shall select as the most highly qualified the number of offerors specified in the solicitation and request the selected offerors to submit phase-two competitive proposals and cost or price information. Each solicitation must establish the relative importance assigned to the evaluation factors and the subfactors that must be considered in the evaluation of phase-two proposals on the basis of the evaluation factors set forth in the solicitation. A Service Board may negotiate with the selected design/build team after award but prior to contract execution for the purpose of securing better terms than originally proposed, provided the salient features of the design/build solicitation are not diminished. Each phase-two solicitation evaluates separately (A) the technical submission for the proposal, including design concepts or proposed solutions to requirements addressed within the scope of work, and (B) the evaluation factors and subfactors, including cost or price, that must be considered in the evaluations of proposals.
(iv) A design/build solicitation issued under the
procedures in this subsection (b) shall state the maximum number of offerors that are to be selected to submit competitive phase-two proposals. The maximum number specified in the solicitation shall not exceed 5 unless the Service Board with respect to an individual solicitation determines that a specified number greater than 5 is in the best interest of the Service Board and is consistent with the purposes and objectives of the two-phase design/build selection process.
(v) All designs submitted as part of the
two-phase selection process and not selected shall be proprietary to the preparers.
