Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Illinois Procurement Code. Provides that each chief procurement officer has authority to designate as veteran small business set-asides a fair proportion of construction, supply, and service contracts for awards to qualified service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses or veteran-owned small businesses. Provides further requirements concerning veteran small business set-aside designations. Requires each chief procurement officer to report to the General Assembly (currently, Department of Central Management Services) on specified information concerning qualified service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses and veteran-owned small businesses, and requires that the number of bids or offers will be delineated between contracts that were designated as set-aside and those that were not designated as set-aside. Makes other changes.
Senate Committee Amendment No. 1 Restores a provision specifying that by each November 1, each chief procurement officer shall report to the Department of Central Management Services on specified information for the immediately preceding fiscal year, and by each March 1 the Department of Central Management Services shall compile and report that information to the General Assembly.
