    AN ACT concerning State government.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Illinois Procurement Code is amended by
changing Section 20-60 as follows:
    (30 ILCS 500/20-60)
    Sec. 20-60. Duration of contracts.
    (a) Maximum duration. A contract, other than a contract
entered into pursuant to the State University Certificates of
Participation Act, may be entered into for any period of time
deemed to be in the best interests of the State but not
exceeding 10 years inclusive, beginning January 1, 2010, of
proposed contract renewals. The length of a lease for real
property or capital improvements shall be in accordance with
the provisions of Section 40-25. A contract for bond or
mortgage insurance awarded by the Illinois Housing Development
Authority, however, may be entered into for any period of time
less than or equal to the maximum period of time that the
subject bond or mortgage may remain outstanding.
    (b) Subject to appropriation. All contracts made or entered
into shall recite that they are subject to termination and
cancellation in any year for which the General Assembly fails
to make an appropriation to make payments under the terms of
the contract.
    (c) The chief procurement officer shall file a proposed
extension or renewal of a contract with the Procurement Policy
Board prior to entering into any extension or renewal if the
cost associated with the extension or renewal exceeds $249,999.
The Procurement Policy Board may object to the proposed
extension or renewal within 30 calendar days and require a
hearing before the Board prior to entering into the extension
or renewal. If the Procurement Policy Board does not object
within 30 calendar days or takes affirmative action to
recommend the extension or renewal, the chief procurement
officer may enter into the extension or renewal of a contract.
This subsection does not apply to any emergency procurement,
any procurement under Article 40, or any procurement exempted
by Section 1-10(b) of this Code. If any State agency contract
is paid for in whole or in part with federal-aid funds, grants,
or loans and the provisions of this subsection would result in
the loss of those federal-aid funds, grants, or loans, then the
contract is exempt from the provisions of this subsection in
order to remain eligible for those federal-aid funds, grants,
or loans, and the State agency shall file notice of this
exemption with the Procurement Policy Board prior to entering
into the proposed extension or renewal. Nothing in this
subsection permits a chief procurement officer to enter into an
extension or renewal in violation of subsection (a). By August
1 each year, the Procurement Policy Board shall file a report
with the General Assembly identifying for the previous fiscal
year (i) the proposed extensions or renewals that were filed
with the Board and whether the Board objected and (ii) the
contracts exempt from this subsection.

becoming law.
