PROC CD-CONSTRCTN JOB POSTINGS
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Procurement Code. Requires that contractors
awarded construction contracts of $1,000,000 or more funded by
Illinois FIRST moneys must provide certain job opportunity information
to applicants at the work site and to the Department of Employment
Security using the Department's forms and procedures. Requires the
Department to post the information at various job centers. Requires
the contractor to supply information on employment of women and
minorities quarterly to a State agency designated by the Governor.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Provides that the postings must include apprenticeship and
journeymen hours "available" (as well as "required") for contracts
"and" (rather than "or") subcontracts to be awarded for the project
"and" (rather than "or") other employment opportunity.
FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1,2 (Dept. of Central Management Services)
As amended, the estimated fiscal impact is now $27,000, if CMS
is designated by the Governor to receive information on women
and minorities employed because of a $1,000,000 or more con-
struction contract in Cook County funded in whole or part by
Illinois FIRST funds. That amount includes an estimated $12,000
for one part-time contractual worker and the remainder for do-
cument storage and computer capacity.
FISCAL NOTE (Department of Employment Security)
IDES, as part of its Federally funded Job Service program,
maintains a State of Illinois Internet site for all job oppor-
tunities it receives which is accessible to all Illinois Em-
ployment and Training Centers and all Internet users. If this
site fits the criteria of HB 3482, there would be quite nomi-
nal additional costs to meet the job opportunities posting
requirements of this bill and those costs could be charged
to IDES' Federal administrative grants.
