(30 ILCS 105/9) (from Ch. 127, par. 145)
    Sec. 9. (a) No disbursements from appropriations shall be made for rental or purchase of office or other space, buildings or land, except in pursuance of a written lease or purchase contract entered into by the proper State authority and the owner or authorized agent of the property. Such lease shall not exceed 5 years unless a greater term is authorized by law, but such lease may contain a renewal clause subject to acceptance by the State after that date or an option to purchase. Such purchase contract may provide for the title to the property to transfer immediately to the State or a trustee or nominee for the benefit of the State and for the consideration to be paid in installments to be made at stated intervals during a certain term not to exceed 30 years from the date of the contract and may provide for the payment of interest on the unpaid balance at a rate that does not exceed a rate determined by adding 3 percentage points to the annual yield on United States Treasury obligations of comparable maturity as most recently published in the Wall Street Journal at the time such contract is signed. Such lease or purchase contract shall be and shall recite that it is subject to termination and cancellation in any year for which the General Assembly fails to make an appropriation to pay the rent or purchase installments payable under the terms of such lease or purchase contract. Additionally such purchase contract shall specify that title to the office and storage space, buildings, land and other facilities being acquired under such a contract shall revert to the Seller in the event of the failure of the General Assembly to appropriate suitable funds. This limitation does not apply to leases for office or other space, buildings, or land, where such leases or purchase contracts contain a provision limiting the liability for the payment of the rental or installments thereunder solely to funds received from the Federal Government. A copy of each such lease or purchase contract shall be filed in the office of the Secretary of State within 15 days after execution.
    (b) The State shall not enter into any third-party vendor or other arrangement relating to the issuance of certificates of participation or other forms of financing relating to the rental or purchase of office or other space, buildings, or land unless otherwise authorized by law.
    (c) Amounts paid from appropriations for personal service of any officer or employee of the State, either temporary or regular, shall be considered as full payment for all services rendered between the dates specified in the payroll or other voucher and no additional sum shall be paid to such officer or employee from any lump sum appropriation, appropriation for extra help or other purpose or any accumulated balances in specific appropriations, which payments would constitute in fact an additional payment for work already performed and for which remuneration had already been made, except that wage payments made pursuant to the application of the prevailing rate principle or based upon the effective date of a collective bargaining agreement between the State, or a State agency and an employee group, or payment of funds as an adjustment to wages paid employees or officers of the State for the purpose of correcting a clerical or administrative error or oversight or pursuant to a backpay order issued by an appropriate State or federal administrative or judicial body or officer shall not be construed as an additional payment for work already performed.
    (d) Disbursements from appropriations which are subject to the approval or certification of the Department of Central Management Services are subject to the following restrictions.
    Payments for personal service except for positions specified in all appropriation Acts shall be made in conformity with schedules and amendments thereto submitted by the respective officers and approved by the Department of Central Management Services before becoming effective. Such schedules and amendments thereto may set up groups of employment showing the approximate number to be employed, with fixed or minimum and maximum salary rates.
    This Section is subject to the provisions of Section 9.02.
