At the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS), procurement is responsible for ethically sourcing contracts that benefit the public. HFS helps millions of Illinoisans access high-quality healthcare and fulfill child support obligations to advance their physical, mental, and financial well-being. We provide healthcare coverage for children and adults through Medicaid and other medical programs, and we help ensure that children receive financial resources from both their parents through Child Support Services.
