Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

    Sec. 20-65. Right to audit records.
    (a) Maintenance of books and records. Every contract and subcontract shall require the contractor or subcontractor, as applicable, to maintain books and records relating to the performance of the contract or subcontract and necessary to support amounts charged to the State under the contract or subcontract. The books and records shall be maintained by the contractor for a period of 3 years from the later of the date of final payment under the contract or completion of the contract and by the subcontractor for a period of 3 years from the later of the date of final payment under the subcontract or completion of the subcontract. However, the 3-year period shall be extended for the duration of any audit in progress at the time of that period's expiration.
    (b) Audit. Every contract and subcontract shall provide that all books and records required to be maintained under subsection (a) shall be available for review and audit by the Auditor General, chief procurement officer, internal auditor, and the purchasing agency. Every contract and subcontract shall require the contractor and subcontractor, as applicable, to cooperate fully with any audit.
    (c) Failure to maintain books and records. Failure to maintain the books and records required by this Section shall establish a presumption in favor of the State for the recovery of any funds paid by the State for which required books and records are not available.
