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 1, Page 8)
Office officials stated the contract and funding source during the compliance examination period ending June 30, 2011 was not held with the Office and the approval processes do not lie solely with the Office but in cooperation with their Board and the Capital Development Board (CDB).
We conducted a compliance examination of the Office of the Architect of the Capitol 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.
