(30 ILCS 708/50)
State grant-making agency responsibilities.
(a) The specific requirements and responsibilities of State grant-making agencies and non-federal entities are set forth in this Act. State agencies making State awards to non-federal entities must adopt by rule the language in 2 CFR 200, Subpart C through Subpart F unless different provisions are required by law.
(b) Each State grant-making agency shall appoint a Chief Accountability Officer who shall serve as a liaison to the Grant Accountability and Transparency Unit and who shall be responsible for the State agency's implementation of and compliance with the rules.
(c) In order to effectively measure the performance of its recipients and subrecipients, each State grant-making agency shall:
(1) require its recipients and subrecipients to
relate financial data to performance accomplishments of the award and, when applicable, must require recipients and subrecipients to provide cost information to demonstrate cost-effective practices. The recipient's and subrecipient's performance should be measured in a way that will help the State agency to improve program outcomes, share lessons learned, and spread the adoption of promising practices; and
(2) provide recipients and subrecipients with clear
performance goals, indicators, and milestones and must establish performance reporting frequency and content to not only allow the State agency to understand the recipient's progress, but also to facilitate identification of promising practices among recipients and subrecipients and build the evidence upon which the State agency's program and performance decisions are made.
(c-5) Each State grant-making agency shall, when it is in the best interests of the State, request that the Office of the Comptroller issue a stop payment order in accordance with Section 105 of this Act.
(c-6) Upon notification by the Grant Transparency and Accountability Unit that a stop payment order has been requested by a State grant-making agency, each State grant-making agency who has issued a grant to that recipient or subrecipient shall determine if it remains in the best interests of the State to continue to issue payments to the recipient or subrecipient.
(d) The Governor's Office of Management and Budget shall provide such advice and technical assistance to the State grant-making agencies as is necessary or indicated in order to ensure compliance with this Act.
(e) In accordance with this Act and the Illinois State Collection Act of 1986, refunds required under the Grant Funds Recovery Act may be referred to the Comptroller's offset system.
