Process for Adding GATA Budget Signoff Authority

Helping Families. Supporting Communities. Empowering Individuals.

PLEASE NOTE: For FY19, only one signature is required on the GATA Budget. The signature of the CFO (or equivalent) is no longer needed.

Please ensure that the Executive Director (or equivalent) is a registered user in the CSA Tracking System prior to requesting approval rights.

  1. If CSA Tracking System access is needed, register following the instructions here: How to Register for the CSA Tracking System.
    If CSA Tracking System access already exists
    , proceed to Step 2.
  2. After the Executive Director's CSA Tracking System registration is approved, send an email to DHS.DHSOCA@Illinois.gov requesting GATA Budget Signoff Authority. The email request should include the following information:
    • The Name and FEIN of the organization;
    • The name and job title of the organization's employee requesting the access for the Executive Director; and
    • The name and External Illinois.gov ID of the Executive Director (or equivalent) who will be used to approve budgets for the provider.
  3. DHSOCA will respond to your email when GATA Budget Signoff Authority is approved. 

No Budget Signoff Authority will be granted via phone or in the comments section of CSA Registration. All requests need to be made via email at DHS.DHSOCA@Illinois.gov
