Procurement Bidding Reform Passes both the Illinois House and Senate!

Increasing Access to Government Contracts for Small, Minority, and Women-Owned Businesses

SB 2192

The SBAC is excited to announce legislation that will increase access to government contracts for small, minority, and women-owned businesses has passed both the Illinois House and Senate! Small businesses play a critical role in Illinois’ economy. Helping small businesses receive their fair share of state procurement contracts is important for job creation and the success of the state’s small businesses.

“It is imperative that when small business owners spend the time and resources needed to procure government contracts, they understand the reasons their bids have been rejected, stated Elliot Richardson, President of the Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC). SBAC CEO, Scott Baskin, adds, “Small businesses drive our economy so we want to ensure they can compete for government contracts. The same is true for minority and women-owned businesses because they support local communities and create jobs.”
