As a potential vendor considering doing business with the State of Illinois there are certain rules and regulations of which you should be aware in order for you and your business to participate in a proper and ethical procurement process.

Procurement Communication Reporting Requirement - There are specific requirements set forth by the Code with regard to communications between State employees and potential vendors related to State procurements. The reporting requirements are for State employees and are set forth in Section 50-39 of the Code at 30 ILCS 500/50.

Procurement Communication Reporting Form - The form for submitting required reports is available through the Procurement Policy Board’s Procurement Communication Reporting page. While a vendor is not required to report, vendors should be aware of this requirement and that certain communications between a vendor and State employee may be reported on the above referenced form.

Illinois Procurement Code - There are specific requirements related to how State procurements are required to be conducted.
