Schedule and Agenda for Sole Source Hearings

In cases where there is only one economically feasible source for a particular item, a sole source contract may be awarded without a hearing unless an interested party submits a written request for a public hearing at which the chief procurement officer and purchasing agency present written justification for the procurement method. Any interested party may present testimony. A sole source contract where a hearing was requested by an interested party may be awarded after the hearing is conducted with the approval of the chief procurement officer. 30 ILCS 500/20-25.
