|The Illinois Lottery is giving notice to amend its contract with E. C. Ortiz & Co., LLP via a change order. The original IPB number is 22032122. The change order is to extend the date of completion by no more than two months and the increase in cost is not to exceed $35,000.00. The hourly rate remains at $110/hour.|
Pursuant to 44 Ill. Adm. Code 1.2067, a change order must be accompanied by a written determination that includes a statement that: (1) the circumstances said to necessitate the change in performance were not reasonably foreseeable at the time the contract was signed, or (2) the change is germane to the original contract as signed, or (3) the change order is in the best interest of the State. A change order to extend the time of completion while Illinois Lottery completes the process of procuring a new contract for drawing observation and monitoring services (IPB 22040575) is in the best interest of the State. The extension will enable the continuity of services required during this process.
