(a) If goods are needed to perform a contract with the County, a non-profit organization that is exempt from taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code but which is not a public entity may:
(1) subject to subsection (d), buy the goods under an existing County requirements contract;
(2) engage in cooperative procurement for the goods with the County under Section 11B-40; or
(3) buy the goods from the County if all items are in stock and not otherwise needed.
(b) Any purchase under subsection (a) is subject to review and approval by the Chief Administrative Officer or designee. A reasonable service fee may be assessed by the County.
(c) As part of the report required under Section 11B-32, the Director must provide information on use of this subsection by non-profit organizations in aggregate dollar amount, types of purchases made, significant purchasers under this subsection (as determined by the Director based on dollar amount), any identified additional cost or cost savings to the County, and any other relevant information.
(d) For purposes of paragraph (a)(1), the authority to purchase goods under a County requirements contract executed before January 1, 1993, may be exercised only if the requirements contract or an amendment to it allows the qualifying non-profit organization to purchase the goods. For requirements contracts executed after January 1, 1993, a qualifying non-profit organization may purchase goods under the contract unless the requirements contract expressly provides otherwise.
