This contract will have a renewal option of four years in one of the following options, one renewal covering the entire renewal allowance, individual one-year renewal up to and including the entire renewal allowance, or any combination of full or partial-year renewals up to and including the entire renewal allowance

Due to the unprecedented economic recession the State of Illinois has experienced lower than expected revenues which has led to a delayed payment cycle. In many cases, vendors and service providers are waiting several months to receive payment for goods and services provided to the state. The State of Illinois Vendor Payment Program is intended to provide relief to those vendors and service providers. For more information please see our website at
