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.

(from Ch. 122, par. 19b-2)
Evaluation of proposal.
Before entering into a guaranteed
energy savings contract under Section 19b-3, a school district or area
vocational center shall submit
a request for proposals. The school district or area vocational center
shall evaluate any sealed
proposal from a qualified provider. The evaluation shall analyze the estimates
of all costs of installations, modifications or remodeling, including, without
limitation, costs of a pre-installation energy audit or analysis, design,
engineering, installation, maintenance, repairs, debt
service, conversions to a different energy or fuel source, or
post-installation project monitoring, data collection, and reporting. The
evaluation shall include a detailed analysis of whether either the energy
consumed or the operating costs, or both, will be reduced. If technical
assistance is not available by a licensed architect or registered
professional engineer on the school district or area vocational center
staff, then the evaluation of
the proposal shall be done by a registered professional engineer or
architect, who is retained by the school district or area vocational
center. A licensed architect or registered professional engineer evaluating a proposal under this Section must not have any financial or contractual relationship with a qualified provider or other source that would constitute a conflict of interest. The school district or area vocational center may
pay a reasonable fee for evaluation of the proposal or include the fee as
part of the payments made under Section 19b-4.
