Public procurement localisation

Under the "Local Food, Farms, and Jobs Act" that took effect on August 18, 2009, the state of Illinois set a goal by which '20% of all food and food products purchased by State agencies and State-owned facilities, including, without limitation, facilities for persons with mental health and developmental disabilities, correctional facilities, and public universities, shall, by 2020, be local farm or food products.'
 
Furthermore, a preference margin is introduced for local produce. The act also provides inter alia that ''t'o meet the goals set forth in this Section, when a State contract for purchase of food or food products is to be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder, an otherwise qualified bidder who will fulfill the contract through the use of local farm or food products may be given preference over other bidders, provided that the cost included in the bid of local farm or food products is not more than 10% greater than the cost included in a bid that is not for local farm or food products.'
