PROCURMNT CD-BID PROCEDURES                                                

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Illinois  Procurement  Code.   Provides  that   each      
   invitation  for  sealed bids shall at a minimum include a statement of      
   all significant factors and  significant  subfactors  that  the  State      
   agency  reasonably  expects  to consider in evaluating sealed bids and      
   the  relative  importance  assigned  to  each  of  those  factors  and      
   subfactors, and that the State agency shall include cost or  price  to      
   the  State  as  an  evaluation  factor  that must be considered in the      
   evaluation of proposals.   Sets  forth  specific  bid  procedures  for      
   construction  manager  services, Illinois correctional industries, and      
   art-in-architecture program  procurement.   Creates  requirements  for      
   justification  for  use  of  noncompetitive  procedures.   Amends  the      
   Legislative  Audit  Commission  Act.  Provides that the Commission may      
   review procurements made by any State agency and that  the  Commission      
   or  a  member  of  the Commission may, if necessary direct the Auditor      
   General to undertake an investigation of the procurement practices  of      
   a State agency.  Effective immediately.                                     
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Deletes reference to:                                                
          30 ILCS 500/30-16 new                                                
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          30 ILCS 5/3-1                                                        
        Deletes everything.  Amends the Legislative Audit Commission  Act      
   and  the  Illinois  State  Auditing  Act.  Allows the Commission, or 3      
   members of the Commission, to direct the Auditor General  to  audit  a      
   State agency's procurement  practices when it has been determined that      
   it  is  not  in the State's best interest to award the contract to the      
   lowest  responsible  and  responsive  bidder.    Amends  the  Illinois      
   Procurement Code.  Provides that, when a  contract  is  awarded  to  a      
   bidder  other  than  the lowest responsible and responsive bidder, the      
   required  written  explanation  must  include  specified  information.      
   Requires the written explanation to be filed with the Auditor  General      
   and  the  Procurement  Policy  Board  and  to be made available to the      
   public for inspection.    Provides  that  certain  contracts  are  not      
   required  to  be  let  by  competitive  bidding  but  must  meet other      
   criteria. Requires the Auditor General to file a list of contracts          
   awarded to a bidder other than the lowest reponsible and responsive         
   bidder with the Legislative Audit Commission and the Governor at the        
   end of each fiscal quarter. Requires the Legislative Audit Commission       
   to review those contracts and advise the General Assembly of contracts      
   that appear to constitute an abuse of the  provisions  concerning  the      
   award  of  contracts  to bidders other than the lowest responsible and      
   responsive bidder. Effective immediately.                                   
          FISCAL NOTE, AS AMENDED, (Legislative Audit Commission)              
          The Department will incur no additional costs to implement           
          HB 3143, as amended.                                                 
          STATE DEBT NOTE, H-AM 1 (Ill. Economic & Fiscal Commission)          
          HB 3143, as amended by House Amendment 1, would not affect the       
          bonding authorization of the State, and, therefore, has no           
          direct impact on the level of State indebtedness.                    
          STATE MANDATES NOTE, H-AM 1                                          
          (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)                       
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 3143 (H-am 1) does not create a           
          State mandate under the State Mandates Act.
