Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates  the  Illinois  Procurement  Code.   Provides   for   the      
   purchasing  of  supplies,  services, and construction and, until 1998,      
   the leasing of real property and capital improvements  by  the  State.      
   Establishes  a  Procurement  Policy Board appointed by the Governor to      
   promulgate procurement policies  and  rules.   Provides  for  a  Chief      
   Procurement  Officer  appointed by the Board to oversee implementation      
   of its policies. Grants general procurement and  rulemaking  authority      
   to  16  State  purchasing  officers appointed by State officers of the      
   executive, legislative, and judicial branches and the governing boards      
   of State colleges and universities.  Permits delegation of procurement      
   authority under certain circumstances.  Grants  procurement  authority      
   for  professional  or  artistic services to individual State entities.      
   Makes  competitive  sealed  bidding  the  required  method  of  source      
   selection, with exceptions for procurements of a small, emergency,  or      
   sole  source  nature.   Provides for procurement preferences, contract      
   requirements,  auditing,  prohibitions,  and  penalties.   Amends  the      
   Governmental  Joint  Purchasing  Act  and  repeals  various  Acts  and      
   Sections of Acts governing State purchasing. Effective immediately.         
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that the Board of Trustees of Chicago State  University,      
   Eastern  Illinois  University,  Governors  State  University, Illinois      
   State University, Northeastern Illinois University, Northern  Illinois      
   University,  and  Western  Illinois  University  shall appoint a State      
   purchasing officer.                                                         
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          HB1481 fails to create a State mandate.                              
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1                                   
          No change from previous mandates note.                               
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (DCMS)                                           
          Estimated implementation cost is $2,737,654. In addition, for        
          every percentage increase in State lease costs, due to the pur-      
          chase option requirement, State expenditures would increase          
          by $937,000.                                                         
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                 
        Provides that the Code applies only  to  procurements  for  which      
   contractors  were  first  solicited on or after July 1,1998.  Provides      
   that the Code shall not apply to contracts between the State  and  its      
   political   subdivisions   or  other  governments,  or  between  State      
   governmental bodies; grants; purchase of care; contracts for  personal      
   services;  or  collective  bargaining  contracts.   Provides  that  in      
   certain  cases,  procurements  involving  the  Illinois  Department of      
   Transportation and  the  Illinois  Toll  Highway  Authority  shall  be      
   delegated  to the Secretary of Transportation or the Authority, as the      
   case may be, rather than the State purchasing officers.  Provides that      
   the Illinois Procurement Bulletin shall be published  at  least  twice      
   monthly  (now at least once a month).  Provides that, by rule, bids or      
   proposals may be accepted by fax, electronic data exchange,  or  other      
   methods.   Provides that for purposes of sole source procurements, the      
   procuring agency shall maintain a list of contracts awarded on a  sole      
   source  basis including the reasons for determining the contractor was      
   the sole economically feasible source.  Provides that public notice of      
   the need for the procurement and the request for information  for  the      
   availability  of  real  property  to  lease  shall be published in the      
   Illinois Procurement Bulletin at least 14 days before the date for the      
   opening of the proposals (now 28 days).  Provides for  procurement  of      
   legal,  medical, and related services without notice of competition in      
   certain instances.  Provides that with respect to  real  property  and      
   capital  improvement  leases,  the  option  to  purchase  shall not be      
   included if the purchasing officer determines that it is  not  in  the      
   State's  best interest.  Provides that the State Agency may enter into      
   concessions and leases of State property in writing.  Provides that an      
   executive ethics board or commission designated by  the  Governor  may      
   exempt  individuals from certain provisions under the Code.  Effective      
   July 1, 1997, to be implemented on July 1, 1998.
