FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

LONG-RANGE MASTER PLAN FOR THE STATE CAPITOL BUILDING AND LEGISLATIVE COMPLEX NOT PREPARED

 

††††††††††† The Office has not prepared and implemented a long-range master plan of development for the State Capitol Building and the remaining portion of the legislative complex addressing the improvement, construction, historic preservation, restoration, maintenance, repair, and landscaping needs.

 

††††† We recommended the Office take the appropriate actions to prepare and implement a long-range master plan as required by State statute(Finding 2, Pages 10-11)

 

††††† Office management stated that although it is part of the Legislative Commission Reorganization Act that the Office prepare, or more realistically have prepared by others under our jurisdiction, a long range masterplan of the Capitol Complex, the contract and funding source are not held with this Office and the approval processes do not lie solely with this Office but are in cooperation with our Board and the Capital Development Board.In addition, the role of the Office is as spearhead or facilitator, not the final authority.

 

 

†††††††† AUDITORSí OPINION

 

††††† We conducted a compliance examination of the Office as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act.†† We have not audited any financial statements of the Office for the purpose of expressing an opinion because the Office does not, nor is it required to, prepare financial statements.
