|The Illinois Procurement Code requires every person that has entered into a multi-year contract and every subcontractor with a multi-year subcontract to certify to the respective Chief Procurement Officer by July 1 of each fiscal year covered by the contract whether it continues to satisfy the Article 50 requirements pertaining to eligibility for contract award. See 30 ILCS 500/50-2. A “multi-year contract” is one in which the term of the contract lasts for more than 12 months. |
State agencies will work with their multi-year contractors to complete ONE of following three options that satisfy this continuing disclosure requirement.
Option #1: For vendors registered in the Illinois Procurement Gateway, the agency will print proof of the vendor’s registration.
Option #2: Multi-year contractors will return to the state agency a completed “Continuing Disclosure for Contractors and Subcontractors with Multi-Year Contracts” form for themselves and subcontractors as applicable.
Option #3: Multi-year contractors will return new financial disclosures.
For vendors choosing either Option #2 or Option #3, all forms should be sent to the state agency no later than Friday June, 30, 2017.
While this continuing certification requirement applies to multi-year contracts first solicited on or after July 1, 2010, all contractors and subcontractors have a continuing obligation to supplement disclosures required by the Illinois Procurement Code during the term of any contract.
