2     AMENDMENT NO. ______. Amend Senate Bill 375, AS AMENDED, by
3 replacing everything after the enacting clause with the
4 following:
5     "Section 5. The Illinois Procurement Code is amended by

7     (30 ILCS 500/20-60)
8     Sec. 20-60. Duration of contracts.
9     (a) Maximum duration. A contract, other than a contract
10 entered into pursuant to the State University Certificates of
11 Participation Act, may be entered into for any period of time
12 deemed to be in the best interests of the State but not
13 exceeding 10 years inclusive, beginning January 1, 2010, of
14 proposed contract renewals. The length of a lease for real

09600SB0375ham002 - 2 - LRB096 06407 HLH 41428 a

1 mortgage insurance awarded by the Illinois Housing Development
2 Authority, however, may be entered into for any period of time
3 less than or equal to the maximum period of time that the
4 subject bond or mortgage may remain outstanding.
5     (b) Subject to appropriation. All contracts made or entered
6 into shall recite that they are subject to termination and
7 cancellation in any year for which the General Assembly fails
8 to make an appropriation to make payments under the terms of
9 the contract.
10     (c) The chief procurement officer shall file a proposed
11 extension or renewal of a contract with the Procurement Policy
12 Board prior to entering into any extension or renewal if the
13 cost associated with the extension or renewal exceeds $249,999.
14 The Procurement Policy Board may object to the proposed
15 extension or renewal within 30 calendar days and require a
16 hearing before the Board prior to entering into the extension
17 or renewal. If the Procurement Policy Board does not object
18 within 30 calendar days or takes affirmative action to
19 recommend the extension or renewal, the chief procurement
20 officer may enter into the extension or renewal of a contract.
21 This subsection does not apply to any emergency procurement,
22 any procurement under Article 40, or any procurement exempted
23 by Section 1-10(b) of this Code. If any State agency contract
24 is paid for in whole or in part with federal-aid funds, grants,
25 or loans and the provisions of this subsection would result in
26 the loss of those federal-aid funds, grants, or loans, then the



09600SB0375ham002 - 3 - LRB096 06407 HLH 41428 a

1 contract is exempt from the provisions of this subsection in
2 order to remain eligible for those federal-aid funds, grants,
3 or loans, and the State agency shall file notice of this
4 exemption with the Procurement Policy Board prior to entering
5 into the proposed extension or renewal. Nothing in this
6 subsection permits a chief procurement officer to enter into an
7 extension or renewal in violation of subsection (a). By August
8 1 each year, the Procurement Policy Board shall file a report
9 with the General Assembly identifying for the previous fiscal
10 year (i) the proposed extensions or renewals that were filed
11 with the Board and whether the Board objected and (ii) the
12 contracts exempt from this subsection.
