Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

year or calendar year 2019 in each category for the entire budget of the institution (expending both public and private moneys, including any fee-supported entities) and the commodity codes or a description of particular goods and services for the area of procurement in which the institution expects most of those goals to focus on in the next year. However, a private institution of higher education may report the information under this subdivision (3) for fiscal year or calendar year 2018 instead.
