When eligible companies are certified with the State of Illinois, they become more visible to prospective buyers, including other agencies and private contractors seeking to purchase goods and services.

Already Certified?  You should know, each year you must renew your application by submitting a No Change Affidavit (NCA).
This review confirms the company continues to meet the BEP Act requirements to be certified.  This session will take you through the No Change Affidavit Application required to maintain your certification.
