Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide
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.

Disposition of transferable property.
(a) Except as provided in subsection (c), whenever a responsible officer
considers it advantageous to
the State to dispose of transferable property by trading it in for
credit on a replacement of like nature, the responsible officer shall
report the trade-in and replacement to the administrator on forms furnished
by the latter. The exchange, trade or transfer of "textbooks" as defined in
Section 18-17 of the School Code between schools or school districts pursuant
to regulations adopted by the State Board of Education under that Section
shall not constitute a disposition of transferable property within the
meaning of this Section, even though such exchange, trade or transfer
occurs within 5 years after the textbooks are first provided for loan
pursuant to Section 18-17 of the School Code.
(b) Except as provided in subsection (c), whenever it is deemed
necessary to dispose of any item of
transferable property, the administrator shall proceed to dispose of the
property by sale or scrapping as the case may be, in whatever manner he
considers most advantageous and most profitable to the State.
Items of transferable property which would ordinarily be scrapped and
disposed of by burning or by burial in a landfill may be examined and a
determination made whether the property should be recycled. This
determination and any sale of recyclable property shall be in accordance
with rules promulgated by the Administrator.
When the administrator determines that property is to be disposed of
by sale, he shall offer it first to the municipalities, counties, and
school districts of the State and to charitable, not-for-profit educational
and public health organizations, including but not limited to medical
institutions, clinics, hospitals, health centers, schools, colleges,
universities, child care centers, museums, nursing homes, programs for the
elderly, food banks, State Use Sheltered Workshops and
the Boy and Girl Scouts of America, for purchase at an appraised
value. Notice of inspection or viewing dates and property lists
shall be distributed in the manner provided in rules and regulations
promulgated by the Administrator for that purpose.
Electronic data processing equipment purchased and charged to
appropriations may, at the discretion of the administrator, be sold, pursuant
to contracts entered into by the Director of Central Management Services or
the heads of agencies exempt from "The Illinois Purchasing Act". However
such equipment shall not be sold at prices less than the purchase cost
thereof or depreciated value as determined by the administrator. No
sale of the electronic data processing equipment and lease to the State
by the purchaser of such equipment shall be made under this Act unless
the Director of Central Management Services finds
that such contracts are financially advantageous to the State.
Disposition of other transferable property by sale, except sales
directly to local governmental units, school districts, and not-for-profit
educational, charitable and public health organizations, shall be subject
to the following minimum conditions:
(1) The administrator shall cause the property to be
advertised for sale to the highest responsible bidder, stating time, place, and terms of such sale at least 7 days prior to the time of sale and at least once in a newspaper having a general circulation in the county where the property is to be sold.
(2) If no acceptable bids are received, the
administrator may then sell the property in whatever manner he considers most advantageous and most profitable to the State.
(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, an agency covered
by this Act may transfer books, serial publications, or other library
materials that are transferable property, or that have been withdrawn from the agency's library collection through a regular collection evaluation process, to any of the following entities:
(1) Another agency covered by this Act located in
(2) A State supported university library located in
(3) A tax-supported public library located in
Illinois, including a library established by a public library district.
(4) A library system organized under the Illinois

(5) A non-profit agency, located in or outside
A transfer of property under this subsection is not subject to the
requirements of subsection (a) or (b).
In addition, an agency covered by this Act may sell or exchange books, serial publications, and other library materials that have been withdrawn from its library collection through a regular collection evaluation process. Those items may be sold to the public at library book sales or to book dealers or may be offered through exchange to book dealers or other organizations. Revenues generated from the sale of withdrawn items shall be retained by the agency in a separate account to be used solely for the purchase of library materials; except that in the case of the State Library, revenues from the sale of withdrawn items shall be deposited into the State Library Fund to be used for the purposes stated in Section 25 of the State Library Act.
For purposes of this subsection (c), "library materials" means physical
entities of any substance that serve as carriers of information, including,
without limitation, books, serial publications, periodicals, microforms,
graphics, audio or
video recordings, and machine readable data files.
(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, the Director of the Illinois State Police may dispose of a service firearm or police badge issued or previously issued to a retiring or separating State Police officer as provided in Section 17b of the Illinois State Police Act.

It is declared to be the public policy of
this State, and the General Assembly determines, that it is in the best
interest of the people of this State to expend the least amount of funds
possible on the purchase of furniture.
Agencies that desire to purchase new furniture shall first check with the
administrator if any of the surplus furniture under the administrator's control
can be used in place of new furniture. If an agency finds that it is unable to
use the surplus property, the agency shall file an affidavit with the
administrator prior to any purchase, specifying the types of new furniture to
be bought, the quantities of each type of new furniture, the cost per type, and
the total cost per category. The affidavit shall also clearly state why the
furniture must be purchased new as opposed to obtained from the administrator's
surplus. The affidavits shall be made available by the administrator for
public inspection and copying.
This Section applies only to the purchase of an item of furniture with a
purchase price of $500 or more.

(from Ch. 127, par. 133b10.1)
(a) Except as otherwise provided by law, all surplus real
property held by the State of Illinois shall be disposed of by the
administrator as provided in this Section. "Surplus real property," as
used in this Section, means any real property to which the State holds fee
simple title or
lesser interest, and is vacant and determined by the head of the owning agency to no longer be required for the State agency's needs and responsibilities and has no foreseeable use by the owning agency. Title to the surplus real property may remain with the owning agency throughout the disposition process if approved by the Administrator; however, the Administrator and the Department of Central Management Services shall have sole responsibility and authority for disposing of the property as set out in this Section.
(b) All responsible officers shall submit an Annual Real Property
Utilization Report to the Administrator, or annual update of such
report, on forms required by the Administrator, by July 31 of each year.
The Administrator may require such documentation as he deems reasonably
necessary in connection with this Report, and shall require that such
Report include the following information:
(1) A legal description of all real property owned by
the State under the control of the responsible officer.
(2) A description of the use of the real property
(3) A list of any improvements made to such real
property during the previous year.
(4) The dates on which the State first acquired its
interest in such real property, and the purchase price and source of the funds used to acquire the property.
(5) Plans for the future use of currently unused real
(6) A declaration of any surplus real property. On or
before October 31 of each year the Administrator shall furnish copies of each responsible officer's report along with a list of surplus property indexed by legislative district to the General Assembly.
This report shall be filed with the Speaker, the Minority Leader and the
Clerk of the House of Representatives and the President, the Minority
Leader and the Secretary of the Senate and shall be duplicated and made
available to the members of the General Assembly for evaluation by such
members for possible liquidation of unused public property at public sale.
(c) Following receipt of the Annual Real Property Utilization Report
required under paragraph (b), the Administrator shall notify all State
agencies by October 31 of all declared surplus real
(d) Any surplus real property shall be disposed of
by the Administrator. No appraisal is required if during his initial
survey of surplus real property the Administrator determines such
property has a fair market value of less than $5,000. If the value of
such property is determined by the Administrator in his initial survey
to be $5,000 or more, then the Administrator shall obtain 2 appraisals
of such real property, which shall include known liabilities, including, but not limited to, environmental costs.
The average of these 2 appraisals shall represent the fair market value of the surplus real
No surplus real property may be conveyed by the Administrator
for less than the fair market value, unless the Administrator makes a written determination that it is in the best interests of the State to establish a different value. That written determination shall be published in the Illinois Procurement Bulletin. Such written determination, along with an affidavit setting forth the conditions and circumstances that make the use of a different value in the best interests of the State, shall also be filed with the Executive Ethics Commission. The Executive Ethics Commission shall have 30 days to review the written determination. The Executive Ethics Commission may order an additional 30 days to review the written determination. The Administrator shall provide the Executive Ethics Commission with any information requested by the Executive Ethics Commission related to the Administrator's determination of the value of the surplus real property. If the Executive Ethics Commission objects in writing to the value determined by the Administrator, then the Administrator shall not convey the surplus real property for less than either the fair market value as determined by the average of appraisals or an amount agreed upon by the Executive Ethics Commission and the Administrator. Circumstances in which it is in the best interests of the State to establish a different value may include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) an auction did not yield any bids at the established fair market value; (ii) a unit of local government is interested in acquiring the surplus real property; or (iii) the costs to the State of maintaining such surplus real property are sufficiently high that it would be reasonable to a prudent person to sell such surplus real property for less than the fair market value established by the average of the appraisals. In no event shall the Administrator sell surplus real property for less than 75% of fair market value and before such property has been offered to an interested unit of local government or made available at public auction.
Prior to offering the surplus real
property for sale to the public the Administrator shall give notice in
writing of the existence of the surplus real
property to each State agency and to the governing bodies of the county and of all cities,
villages and incorporated towns in the county in which such real
property is located. Any such State agency or governing body may notify the Administrator of its interest in acquiring the surplus real property within a notice period set by the Administrator of at least 30 days. If any State agency notifies the Administrator of its interest in acquiring the surplus property, the Administrator may deny any such requests by such agency if the Administrator determines that it is more advantageous to the State to dispose of the surplus real property to a governing body or the public. If a governing body notifies the Administrator of its interest in acquiring the property, then the Administrator shall wait a minimum of 30 additional days during which the Administrator may engage in negotiations with such governing body for the sale of the surplus real property. After the notice period set by the Administrator of at least 30 days has passed, the
Administrator may sell the surplus real property by public auction, which may include an electronic auction or the use of sealed bids, following notice of such sale by publication on 3 separate days not less
than 15 nor more than 30 days prior to the sale in the State newspaper
and in a newspaper having general circulation in the county in which the
surplus real property is located. The Administrator shall post "For
Sale" signs of a conspicuous nature on such surplus real property
offered for sale to the public. If no acceptable offers for the surplus
real property are received, the Administrator may have new appraisals of
such property made. The Administrator shall have all power necessary to
convey surplus real property under this Section. All moneys received
for the sale of surplus real property shall be deposited in the General
Revenue Fund, except that:
(1) Where moneys expended for the acquisition of such
real property were from a special fund which is still a special fund in the State treasury, this special fund shall be reimbursed in the amount of the original expenditure and any amount in excess thereof shall be deposited in the General Revenue Fund.
(2) Whenever a State mental health facility operated
by the Department of Human Services is closed and the real estate on which the facility is located is sold by the State, the net proceeds of the sale of the real estate shall be deposited into the Community Mental Health Medicaid Trust Fund.
(3) Whenever a State developmental disabilities
facility operated by the Department of Human Services is closed and the real estate on which the facility is located is sold by the State, the net proceeds of the sale of the real estate shall be deposited into the Community Developmental Disability Services Medicaid Trust Fund.
The Administrator shall have authority to order such surveys, abstracts
of title, or commitments for title insurance as may, in his reasonable
discretion, be deemed necessary to demonstrate to prospective purchasers or
bidders good and marketable title in any property offered for sale pursuant
to this Section. Unless otherwise specifically authorized by the General
Assembly, all conveyances of property made by the Administrator shall be by
quit claim deed.
(e) The Administrator shall submit an annual report on or before
February 1 to the Governor and the General Assembly containing a
detailed statement of surplus real property either transferred or
conveyed under this Section.

with the consent of the agency having jurisdiction over the real property,
may grant such easement. The Administrator shall determine whether or not
such is adverse to the interests of the State of Illinois and shall impose
such limitations on the grant as may be deemed necessary to protect the
interests of the State of Illinois. Such grant may be made with or without
B. The instrument granting the easement shall provide for termination upon:
1. A failure to comply with any term or condition of the grant; or
2. A nonuse of the easement for a consecutive 2 year period for the purpose
3. An abandonment of the easement.
Written notice of such termination shall be given to the grantee effective
on the date of such notice.
C. The authority granted by this Section shall be in addition to, and
shall not affect or be subject to any law regarding granting of easements
on State lands.

The Administrator shall have charge of all transferable property
and shall have authority to take possession and control of such property
in order to transfer or assign any such property to any other State agency
that has need or use for such property or to dispose of said property in
accordance with Section 7 of this Act.
The Administrator may not dispose of a transferable airplane by sale until
he or she determines that
(i) the agency no longer has a need for the airplane, (ii) the airplane will
not be used as a trade-in on another aircraft, and (iii)
no public university or college in Illinois that
offers courses in aviation, flight training, or other subjects involving
knowledge of the workings of an airplane has listed the need for an airplane as
provided in this Section.
Responsible officers shall periodically report all transferable property
at locations under their jurisdictions to the Administrator. The Administrator
shall review such reports and arrange for physical examination of said property
if necessary to determine if said items of transferable property should
be transferred to another State agency, transferred to a central warehouse,
or disposed of. The Administrator shall advise responsible officers of
the results of these reviews as necessary.
The staff under the jurisdiction of the Administrator shall review as
State agencies' inventories for potential items of transferable property.
If in the opinion of the Administrator's staff, any property appears to
be transferable, the Administrator shall notify the responsible officer
of his determination. The executive head of the agency holding the property
in question may appeal the determination in writing to the Administrator.
The Administrator will review the determination in accordance with rules
and procedures established pursuant to Section 5 of this Act.
The Administrator shall maintain lists of transferable property and of
State agency needs for such property and will transfer where appropriate listed
transferable property to agencies listing their needs for such property
as detailed by their responsible officers.
The Administrator must give priority for transfer of an airplane, that is not
to be used as a trade-in, to a public

administrator may, prior to soliciting requests for proposals, enter into discussions with interested purchasers in order to assess existing market conditions, demands and likely development scenarios provided that no such interested purchasers shall have any role in drafting any request for proposals nor shall any request for proposal be provided to any interested purchaser prior to its general public distribution. The administrator may issue a request for qualifications that requests interested purchasers to provide such information as the administrator reasonably deems necessary in order to evaluate the qualifications of such interested purchasers including the ability of interested purchasers to acquire and develop the property, all as reasonably determined by the administrator.
(2) Request for proposals. Proposals to acquire and
develop the property shall be solicited through a request for proposals. Such request for proposals shall include such requirements and factors as the administrator shall determine are necessary or advisable with respect to the disposition of the James R. Thompson Center, including soliciting proposals designating a portion of the property after the development or redevelopment thereof in honor of Governor James R. Thompson.
(3) Public notice. Public notice of any request for
qualification or request for proposals shall be published in the Illinois Procurement Bulletin at least 14 calendar days before the date by which such requests are due. The administrator may advertise the request in any other manner or publication which it reasonably determines may increase the scope and nature of responses to the request. In the event the administrator shall have already identified qualified purchasers pursuant to a request for qualification process as set forth above, notice of the request for proposals may be delivered only to such qualified purchasers.
(4) Opening of proposals. Proposals shall be opened
publicly on the date, time and location designated in the Illinois Procurement Bulletin, but proposals shall be opened in a manner to avoid disclosure of contents to competing purchasers during the process of negotiation.

in 2 parts: (i) items except price, and (ii) covering price. The first part of all proposals shall be evaluated and ranked independently of the second part of all proposals.
(6) Discussion with interested purchasers and
revisions of offers or proposals. After the opening of the proposals, and under such guidelines as the administrator may elect to establish in the request for proposals, the administrator and his or her designees may engage in discussions with interested purchasers who submitted offers or proposals that the administrator determines are reasonably susceptible of being selected for award for the purpose of clarifying and assuring full understanding of and responsiveness to the solicitation requirements. Those purchasers shall be accorded fair and equal treatment with respect to any opportunity for discussion and revision of proposals. Revisions may be permitted after submission and before award for the purpose of obtaining best and final offers. In conducting discussions there shall be no disclosure of any information derived from proposals submitted by competing purchasers. If information is disclosed to any purchaser, it shall be provided to all competing purchasers.
(7) Award. Awards shall be made to the interested
purchaser whose proposal is determined in writing to be the most advantageous to the State, taking into consideration price and the evaluation factors set forth in the request for proposals. The contract file shall contain the basis on which the award is made.

(1) A commitment from the purchaser to make any
applicable payments to the City of Chicago with respect to additional zoning density;

(3) A commitment from the purchaser to designate a
portion of the property after the development or redevelopment thereof in honor of Governor James R. Thompson.
(b-10) The administrator shall have authority to order such surveys, abstracts of
commitments for title insurance, environmental reports, property condition reports, or any other materials as the administrator may, in his or her reasonable discretion, be
necessary to demonstrate to prospective purchasers or bidders good
in and the existing conditions or characteristics of the property offered for sale under
Section. All conveyances of

Section shall be deposited into the General Revenue Fund, provided that any obligations of the State to the purchaser acquiring the property, a contractor involved in the sale of the property, or a unit of local government may be remitted from the proceeds during the closing process and need not be deposited in the State treasury prior to closing.
