FY22 Financial Reporting

FY22 Memorandum to Chief Executive Officers (pdf)

FY22 Memorandum to Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) Providers (pdf)


**Wage Pass Through Certification (NEW DDD document FY22 reporting Update) **

As of May 24, 2022, there were pending changes to the CILA Licensure and Certification Act (210 ILCS 135/). These changes require, among other things, that "Each developmental services agency licensed under this Act shall submit an annual report to the Department, as a contractual requirement between the Department and the developmental services agency, certifying that all legislatively or administratively mandated wage increases to benefit workers are passed through in accordance with the legislative or administrative mandate. The Department shall determine the manner and form of the annual report." These legislative changes were pending Gubernatorial signature (as of May 24, 2022) so the Wage Pass Through Certification form was not able to be included with the FY22 Financial Reporting Packet mailing. Instead, this document was to be sent out as a follow-on mailing once the legislation was signed into law.

These legislation changes were signed on May 27, 2022 with an effective date of January 1, 2023. Due to this, the requirement will start with FY23 reporting and is therefore no longer a FY22 reporting requirement. It will be will be included in the FY23 mailing in May 2023. If you have questions regarding this, you can contact IDHS - Office of Contract Administration's Bureau of Policy and Review via email at DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@illinois.gov.

Submitting items to the CRV (Central Repository Vault)

Annual reporting items are required to be loaded by the Provider to either the CRV (for IDHS specific reporting items), or to the GATA Grantee Portal for GATA specific reporting items. If you have questions about where a reporting item should be loaded, please refer to the IDHS Reporting Checklist you were sent. The Checklist indicates where each item is to be uploaded. If you need assistance gaining access to either the CRV or the GATA Grantee Portal, you may write DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@illinois.gov. If they cannot assist you directly, they will direct you to someone who can.

NOTE: Please, do not mail or email audit reports or other reporting items to the Office of Contract Administration (OCA). IDHS-OCA does not maintain hard-copy files of financial reporting items and is unable to upload documents for Providers. It is the Provider's responsibility to upload documents to the CRV and/or GATA Portal.

Submitting Year-End Financial Reporting Documents

Please note: There were changes to Year-End Financial Reporting that began with FY18's reporting.

Starting with FY18 year-end financial reporting, Grantees/Providers were required to submit documents to the Centralized Repository Vault (CRV) for IDHS reporting items and to the Illinois Grants Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) Grantee Portal for GATA reporting items. Most IDHS grantee-providers submit items to both the CRV and to the GATA Grantee Portal. 

If your funding is provided through a Uniform Grant Agreement (UGA/UIGA) you will be required to submit, at a minimum, your Consolidated Year-End Financial Report (CYEFR) to the GATA Grantee Portal at: https://grants.illinois.gov/portal/, as well as your Independently Audited Financial Statements, as applicable.

IDHS specific reporting documents must be uploaded into the Centralized Repository Vault (CRV). (NOTE: Documents required to be loaded to the CRV but loaded to another site, such at the GATA Grantee Portal, the ISBE CFR Portal, or the wrong CRV page will be considered as not turned into IDHS.) If you need assistance registering or uploading documents into the CRV, you can either visit the CRV information web page, email DHS.CRVSupport@Illinois.gov or call the Office of Contract Administration (OCA) at (217) 524-0398.

Each year-end financial reporting document uploaded to the CRV is reviewed separately and logged as submitted by OCA staff. OCA requires each document to be uploaded into the CRV separately. Please make sure to select the appropriate document type and use the IDHS standardized naming convention when uploading a document to the CRV - see the Required Year-End Reporting Submission Guidelines (pdf)

Questions or concerns regarding year-end financial reporting requirements can be emailed to OCA at DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@Illinois.gov, or you may call OCA at (217) 524-0398.

Required Year-End Financial Reporting Documents

Personnel/Administrative Information Form (PAI)

All providers that are not units of government are required to submit information regarding personnel/administrative activities.

Only a blank version of this form is available. IDHS does not pre-fill the PAI Form nor does it mail it to providers. It is available here:  Personnel/Administrative Information Form (pdf). Or you may request a copy by sending an email request to DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@illinois.gov.

Please upload the completed form into the CRV with the file name indicated in the Required Year-End Reporting Submission Guidelines (pdf).

Provider Demographic Information Form

OCA maintains a database with contact information for all DHS providers and uses the Provider Demographic Information Form to update contact information in that database. The current contact information is used to mail the Financial Reporting Packet each May. Each DHS provider is mailed a pre-filled provider specific Demographic Form (with the most recent information OCA has on file) as part of the Financial Reporting Packet.

Providers should either upload the pre-filled Demographic Information Form as-is to the CRV if all data is correct, or should upload the pre-filled Demographic Form with corrections. If a Provider needs a blank version of the Demographic Form, it is found here: Provider Demographic Information Form (pdf). Either the pre-filled Demographic form, with or without corrections, or a blank form with all data filled in may be uploaded into the CRV.

Note for NEW Providers, and those who need to correct their agency's FYE: (OCA uses a default Fiscal Year End Date (FYE) of June 30 for all Providers with their first Financial Reporting Packet.) The FYE is used to determine the due date for financial reporting. If this FYE as seen on the Demographic Form and the Financial Reporting Checklist is incorrect, OCA will update the database and adjust the reporting due date accordingly. To do this, a Provider should upload a corrected version of the Demographic Form to the CRV as soon as possible and should email the Demographic Form as an email attachment to DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@illinois.gov

Upon receipt of a corrected Demographic Form, OCA will notify the Provider via email of the adjusted reporting due date. This new reporting due date, and the corrected FYE, should be noted on the IDHS Financial Reporting Checklist with the Checklist and other reporting items submitted to the CRV by the adjusted due date. (See DHS Financial Reporting Checklist below.)

Please upload the form to the CRV with the file name indicated in the Required Year-End Reporting Submission Guidelines (pdf).

DHS Financial Reporting Checklist

The DHS Financial Reporting Checklist (Reporting Packet) is mailed in May of each reporting year using the most recent contact information OCA has on file for financial reporting. If another copy of your DHS Financial Reporting Checklist is needed, you may mail DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@illinois.gov or you may call OCA at (217) 524-0398. Please include your agency name, FEIN, and the Fiscal Year for the Checklist you need.

The DHS Financial Reporting Checklist identifies provider specific reporting requirements marked with an "X." The Checklist also contains a management certification that must be signed and dated by either the CEO or CFO and either the Board President or the Board Treasurer.

Note: If you have a change to the FYE as seen on the Checklist, please, note that change on the Checklist. Follow the instructions for submitting a corrected Provider Demographic Information Form (above) so that OCA may update your contact information and can adjust your financial reporting due date. The adjusted due date would also be noted on the Checklist and all IDHS reporting requirements would come due according to this adjusted due date.

Please upload the Checklist into the CRV with the file name indicated in the Required Year-End Reporting Submission Guidelines (pdf).

Performance of Audits

As outlined in Section 15.5 of the FY22 Uniform Grant Agreement (UGA): "For those organizations required to submit an independent audit report, the audit is to be conducted by the Illinois Auditor General (as required for certain governmental entities only), or a Certified Public Accountant or Certified Public Accounting Firm licensed in the state of Illinois or in accordance with Section 5.2 of the Illinois Public Accounting Act (225 ILCS 450/5.2). For all audits required to be performed subject to Generally Accepted Government Auditing standards or Generally Accepted Auditing standards, Grantee shall request and maintain on file a copy of the auditor's most recent peer review report and acceptance letter. Grantee shall follow procedures prescribed by Grantor for the preparation and submission of audit reports and any related documents."

Consolidated Financial Report (CFR) and Opinion

Only Development Disability Providers will complete and submit the Consolidated Financial Report (CFR) per Attachment A of their Medicaid Waiver Agreement. A CFR is required by DDD regardless of whether a Provider has to do the CYEFR (Consolidated Year End Financial Report) in the GATA Portal or not. This is because DDD has determined a need for the data found in the CFR.

The CFR is available through the CSA Tracking System (and is also known as the Year-End Actuals). If the CFR is completed and submitted in the CSA Tracking System, a copy of your CFR will automatically upload into the CRV after a nightly cycle. If your agency is does not have access to the CSA Tracking System, you may send an email to DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@illinois.gov to obtain an Excel spreadsheet version of the CFR. If your CFR is not completed in the CSA Tracking System, please upload the completed CFR into the CRV as a .pdf document with the file name indicated in the Required Year-End Reporting Submission Guidelines (pdf). (NOTE: Documents required to be loaded to the CRV but loaded to another site, such as the GATA Grantee Portal, the ISBE CFR Portal, or the wrong CRV page will be considered as not turned into IDHS.)

If you have questions related to the CFR, you may visit the DHS Provider Year-End Consolidated Financial Report (CFR) web page to obtain the CFR User Manual. OCA recommends that you review the FAQ's for the CFR for additional assistance. If you still have questions after referring to the Manual and the FAQ's, you may send an email to DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@illinois.gov, or you may call OCA at (217) 524-0398.

"In Relation To" Opinion on CFR

Providers that are required to submit a CFR and are subject to a contractual Audit requirement by IDHS - DDD, must include an independent certified public accountant's "In Relation To" (IRTO) Opinion rendered on the CFR Schedule of Program Revenue and Schedule of Program Costs. Refer to AICPA's - AU-C Section 725 for guidance on opinions.

Please upload the Opinion on CFR into the CRV with the file name indicated in the Required Year-End Reporting Submission Guidelines (pdf).

If a provider is not subject to a contractual audit by IDHS-DDD, then the CFR-IRTO is not required.

Consolidated Year End Financial Report (CYEFR) and Opinion

As outlined in Section 15.2 of the FY22 Uniform Grant Agreement (UGA), "All grantees are required to complete and submit a CYEFR through the Grantee Portal, except those exempted by federal or State statute or regulation, as set forth in PART TWO or PART THREE. The CYEFR is a required schedule in the Grantee's audit report if the Grantee is required to complete and submit an audit report as set forth herein."

"(a) This Paragraph 15.2 applies to all Grantees unless exempted pursuant to a federal or state statute or regulation, which is identified in PART TWO or PART THREE."

"(b) The CYEFR must cover the same period as the Audited Financial Statements, if required, and must be submitted in accordance with the audit schedule at 44 Ill. Admin. Code 7000.90.

Grant Close Out Report

The Grant Close Out Report - IL444-4685  replaced the two-page Grant Report which included the Grant Allowable Cost Summary page and the Unallowable Cost Report page. This occurred for FY19 reporting. The Grant Close Out Report is prepared on the State of Illinois' fiscal year basis, not the Provider's FYE, and displays total expenses and unallowable costs by DHS-funded programs.

Please upload the Grant Close Out Report into the CRV with the file name indicated in the Required Year-End Reporting Submission Guidelines (pdf).

NOTE: Starting in reporting for FY20, opinions were no longer required for the Grant Close Out Report.

Grant Reconciliation/Recovery Form (GRRF)

Providers will receive a Grant Reconciliation/Recovery Form (GRRF) in a separate mailing in July 2022. The GRRF is due back to IDHS by August 15, 2022. If the funds awarded are subject to the provisions of the Illinois Grant Funds Recovery Act (30 ILCS 705/1 et seq.), any funds remaining at the end of the Agreement period which are not expended or legally obligated by the provider shall be returned to DHS within 45 days after the end of the Uniform Grant Agreement. The provisions of 89 Ill. Adm. Code 511 shall apply to any funds awarded that are subject to the Illinois Grant Funds Recovery Act.

Please upload the completed GRRF into the CRV with the file name indicated in the Required Year-End Reporting Submission Guidelines (pdf).

The form should be uploaded by August 15, 2021.

Federal and State Tax Forms

Tax forms are required of certain Providers based on the Organizational Type that OCA has for the Provider in its database and are marked on the Financial Reporting Checklist accordingly. This organization type is seen on the Demographic Form. If OCA needs to change the Organizational Type, submission of a corrected Demographic form is how this gets done (see Demographic Information Form above). It is possible that the requirement for Tax Forms will be removed as a result of Organizational Type changes.

The types of tax forms that could be required include:

  • IRS Return or Report (IRS 990, 990EZ, 990PF or other forms depending on your revenue and net asset amounts or if the entity is a private foundation).
  • Form 990T, UBIT, as applicable.
  • Form AG 990-IL.

OCA understands that the IRS will grant extensions for the due date of the 990 that is beyond the normal Financial Reporting Due Date. Therefore, Requests for Extension of the Due Date are not required for Tax Forms. This applies only for Tax Forms. Other reporting items should still be submitted by the normal due date. Please, submit tax forms as soon as possible but no later than the due date established by the IRS extension date.

Please upload these forms into the CRV with the file name indicated in the Required Year-End Reporting Submission Guidelines (pdf).

Requesting Extensions/Waivers/Modifications

The due date for your audit requirements should be discussed with your auditor as soon as possible. Requests for extensions, waivers or modifications of your IDHS specific financial reporting requirements will be considered on a case-by-case basis. This includes extensions on reporting due dates for those programs in which payments have not been received.

*Please note: IDHS is not able to grant extensions on GATA specific reporting requirements (Audits and the CYEFR) as a normal business process until after the due date has passed. IDHS can only approve extensions for GATA specific reporting items for rare and unusual circumstances, such as a natural disaster...and as part of an appeal process once the Provider has been notified they are subject to Stop Pay action.

The form to request and extension can be found here: Extensions/Waiver/Modification Request Form (R-05/2021). (pdf).

Please EMAIL the completed form to IDHS Office of Contract Administration at DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@Illinois.gov, or fax it to: (217) 782-4135. You will be notified of the decision within 10 business days after receipt of the request by OCA.

If your auditor has questions, you may refer them to OCA at or DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@illinois.gov or (217) 782-4135.


Sanctions for Non-Compliance

The Illinois Grants Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) requires the maintenance of a list of individuals and entities temporarily or permanently ineligible to receive grant funds. This list, called the Illinois Stop Payment List Tracking System (SPLTS), is a component of the Grantee Compliance Enforcement System. Failure to comply with current grant Year-End Financial Reporting, or being delinquent on prior years year-end reporting, is grounds for putting a provider on the Stop Pay List. Additional information on the Grantee Compliance Enforcement System or Stop Pay list can be found on the Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) website at: https://www.illinois.gov/sites/gata/Pages/default.aspx.

If you have any questions, you may call OCA at (217) 524-0398 or send questions via email to DHS.OCA.FinancialReporting@illinois.gov.

Note: The Department's statutory ability to make "current fiscal year payments," including payments that have been withheld, ends with the closing of the lapse period for processing payments for that "current fiscal year". This us usually on August 31st of each fiscal year, or a subsequent date, if the lapse period end date is extended for that particular year. After that lapse date, any payments will be processed through the Illinois Court of Claims.
