Provides that the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority may use design-build project delivery methods, Construction Manager/General Contractor project delivery methods, or Alternative Technical Concepts for design-bid-build project delivery of transportation facilities if the facilities delivered do not exceed 20% of the Authority's annual improvement program. Places limits on the number of projects that the Department may use the various methods on. Provides that during the first phase of the two-phase procurement, the Transportation Agency (Department of Transportation or the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority) shall not consider price proposals to make its short-list decision.

6    project or Construction Manager/General Contractor
7    project;
8        (B) the Transportation Agency has issued a notice of
9    intent to receive qualifications, that includes a

14shall use a two-phase procurement for a design-build contract
15to select the successful proposer; provided that the
16Transportation Agency may use a single phase procurement if the
17transportation facility is estimated to cost less than
18$5,000,000 or the Secretary or the Executive Director makes a
19written determination that the Transportation Agency may use a
20single phase procurement for a particular transportation
21facility. In a two-phase procurement, the Transportation
