   Children's  Services  Commission.  Provides  that the Commission shall      
   recommend ways to more effectively deliver services  provided  by  the      
   State  to  children  and families, to promote inter-agency cooperation      
   relating to the delivery of those services, to  more  effectively  use      
   existing  resources,  and to eliminate duplication of efforts. Directs      
   the Commission to make recommendations on the  abolition  of  existing      
   boards,  committees,  and  commissions and on the consolidation of the      
   powers and duties of those boards, committees, and commissions into  a      
   single entity. Creates the Task Force on Accreditation of Services for      
   Children which shall develop accreditation standards for foster homes,      
   group  homes,  community facilities, and other facilities and a 2-year      
   plan  for  mandatory  accreditation  for  those  facilities.  Requires      
   employees of the  Department  of  Children  and  Family  Services  and      
   independent  contractors  to  possess  certain  qualifications  before      
   providing   direct   child   welfare  services.  Amends  the  Illinois      
   Purchasing Act to require prospective contractors  for  child  welfare      
   services  to  prequalify  with  the  Department of Children and Family      
   Services. Effective July 1, 1997.
