Our Office

The Governor's Office of Management and Budget prepares the Governor's annual state budget and advises the Governor on the availability of revenues and the allocation of those resources to agency programs. The Office also issues general obligations and Build Illinois bonds, manages the state's capital program, analyzes state agency programs and budgets and evaluates personnel and operating needs. The major areas of review are education, health and social services, public assistance, debt management, public safety and the environment.

GOMB is responsible for statewide implementation of the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance, 2 CFR 200), the Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA), and Budgeting for Results (BFR). GOMB also supports the BFR Commission, which provides guidance on a statewide framework for state agencies to report performance data.

Through its Single Audit Unit, GOMB will facilitate the administration of the statewide Single Audit required under federal Uniform Guidance. The unit is responsible for coordinating the Single Audit; preparing the statewide Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (SEFA), including the Supplemental Report of Federal Expenditures by Agency/Program/Fund; and submitting the statewide Single Audit and SEFA to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse.

GOMB will oversee the coordination and transition from an agency-level to a statewide-level financial audit of the State of Illinois’ Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR) for the Governor’s agencies.

GOMB employs approximately 60 full-time employees. Employees work in either the Stratton Building in Springfield or the State of Illinois Building in Chicago. GOMB's operating Budget for fiscal year 2025 is $620,863,400.

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

The Freedom of Information Act provides that a person can ask a public body for a copy of its records on a specific subject and the public body must provide those records, unless there is an exemption in the statute that protects those records from disclosure (for example: records containing information concerning trade secrets or personal privacy).

Requests for inspection or copies of public records to GOMB must be made in writing and submitted via personal delivery, email, mail, or other means. Oral FOIA requests will not be accepted.

How to Submit a FOIA Request

Requests should be addressed to:

Governor’s Office of Management and Budget

ATTN: FOIA Officer
401 S. Spring
603 Stratton Building
Springfield, IL 62706

Fax: 217-524-4876

Requests should include a clear and concise statement of the records requested, the format requested, and your contact information. This information will help GOMB to respond within the timeframe the law requires.

If your request is for a commercial purpose (5 ILCS 140/2(c-10)), please make note of that in your request.

Please be aware that FOIA is not intended as a medium for answering questions. General inquiries should be directed to the appropriate GOMB staff member. Press inquiries should be directed to GOMB’s Director of Communications


Fees associated with FOIA

The first 50 pages of black and white, letter or legal sized copies of records requested are free. Copies of records that surpass 50 pages are generally subject to a fee of 15 cents per page. If color copies or abnormal size (not 8½ x 11 or 8½ x 14) copies of records are provided to a requester, the GOMB will charge a fee that will not exceed the actual cost of reproduction.

For more information on the guidelines used to charge fees related to FOIA, please review Section 6 of FOIA.
