- New Business:
Chairman Roberts reported that the working group of the subcommittee met and have laid the groundwork for the subcommittee to work on confirming what the law says and what the role of staff and committee members are.
Member McCrimon reported that the working group has been looking at processes with staff regarding the Chief Procurement office. We are clarifying procedures and processes from an efficiency point of view; we feel that good groundwork has been laid.
Mitzi Loftus, Deputy Director, reported that we have gotten ideas on paper as a starting point and hoping the subcommittee will look at that and confirm that it is the path we want to take and then will flush out procedures to be put in place. It should then clarify the roles and responsibilities of administrative staff and committee members.
Member Gloede brought up the issue about Illinois Department of Labor and the United States Department of Labor and their participation in the State Use program.
Member McCrimon suggested that the statutory requirement is United States Department of Labor not Illinois Department of Labor. We need clarification of their role in the program.
