Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Procurement Code. Provides that each

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

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.

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.
