b) Businesses

No business shall be barred from contracting with any unit of State or local government, or subcontracting under such a contract, as a result of a conviction under this Section of any employee or agent of the business if the employee or agent is no longer employed by the business and:

1) The business has been finally adjudicated not guilty; or
2) The business demonstrates to the governmental entity with which it seeks to contract, or that is a signatory to the contract to which the subcontract relates, and that entity finds that the commission of the offense was not authorized, requested, commanded or performed by a director, officer or high managerial agent on behalf of the business, as provided in Section 5-4(a)(2) of the Criminal Code of 2012. [30 ILCS 500/50-5(b) ]
c) Conduct on Behalf of Business

For purposes of this Section, when an official, agent or employee of a business committed the bribery or attempted bribery on behalf of the business and in accordance with the direction or authorization of a responsible official of the business, the business shall be chargeable with the conduct. [30 ILCS 500/50-5(c) ]

d) Certification

Every bid, offer, response, submission, quotation or quote submitted to every contract executed by the State, every subcontract subject to Section 20-120 of the Code, and every vendor's submission to a vendor portal shall contain a certification by the bidder, offeror, respondent, submitter, person who submits a quotation or quote, potential contractor, contractor or subcontractor, respectively, that the bidder, offeror, respondent, submitter, person who submits a quotation or quote, potential contractor, contractor or subcontractor is not barred from being awarded a contract or subcontract under Section 50-5 of the Code, and acknowledges that the CPO-GS may declare the related contract void if any certifications required by that Section are false. If the false certification is made by a subcontractor, then the contractor's submitted bid, offer, response, submission, quotation or quote and the executed contract may not be declared void, unless the contractor refuses to terminate the subcontract upon the State's request after a finding that the subcontractor's certification was false. A contractor or subcontractor who makes a false statement, material to the certification, commits a Class 3 felony. [30 ILCS 500/50-5(d) ]
