The information made available in this database comes directly from the Comptroller's records center. This live database is meant to provide a better understanding of where state tax dollars go, and which non-governmental organizations have contracts with the State of Illinois.
Contracts are defined in the Illinois Procurement Code (30 ILCS 500/1-15.30) as "all types of State agreements, including change orders and renewals, regardless of what they may be called, for the procurement, use, or disposal of supplies, services, professional or artistic services, or construction or for leases of real property, whether the State is lessor or lessee, or capital improvements, and including master contracts, contracts for financing through use of installment or lease-purchase arrangements, renegotiated contracts, amendments to contracts, and change orders".
This contract database does not include state agreements that are coded as "awards & grants". The initiating state agency codes each state agreement prior to submission to the Comptroller's Office. A separate grant database is available that contains those types of agreements.
Current fiscal year state contracts are listed and can be sorted in ascending or descending order by category, using the arrows below.
Conduct a search for a specific contract by entering the vendor name in the box, and clicking the "Find State Contracts" button. Search for a contract from a previous fiscal year by using the drop-down menu marked "FY".
Searches may take up to several minutes to complete. You may also choose to download the entire document by clicking on the "Download" button.
