Board Information

The Capital Development Board (CDB) manages the State's building and capital improvement program; reviews and periodically revises building and construction codes; and advises state agencies and units of local government on preparing long-range capital expenditure plans.

Established to better manage the State's capital improvement programs, CDB is guided by a seven-member, bipartisan board that deliberates matters of policy; approves the selection of design professionals pursuant to the Architectural, Engineering, and Land Surveying Qualifications Based Selection Act (30 ILCS 535); and sets the direction for CDB. The Board members, who are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Illinois Senate, serve four-year, unpaid terms. They also are charged with selecting an Executive Director, who is responsible for the daily operations and management of CDB and its employees.
