In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Chicago has joined the State of Illinois in issuing a Stay at Home order effective Saturday, March 21st at 5pm CT. In addition, City of Chicago facilities are closed to the public. Staff are prioritizing essential services to protect the health and safety of our residents and employees. As such, we may be delayed in responding to non-essential inquiries and service requests.

The City of Chicago requires disclosure of the information requested in the Economic Disclosure Statement and Affidavit (“EDS”) before any City agency, department, or City Council action regarding the matter that is the subject of the EDS.
Applicants can complete an EDS either manually (hard copy) or online (electronically). It is easy to use the Online EDS application's online manuals and videos.
Applicants are STRONGLY encouraged to complete the EDS online. Most solicitations require the EDS to be completed online.
The following information relates to the manual completion of the forms.
Whether completed online or manually, the following EDS Rules provide guidance on interpretation of the EDS per Chapter 2-154 of the Municipal Code and 65 ILCS 5/8-10-8.5 of the Illinois Complied Statutes.
The purpose of the following EDS Recertification is for you to recertify your EDS prior to submission to City Council or on the date of closing. Generally, for use with City Council matters and not for City procurements unless requested. If unable to recertify truthfully, The Disclosing Party must complete a new EDS with correct or corrected information.
