The Statewide Accounting Management System (SAMS), which is the Comptroller’s Office official system of maintaining accounting records for the State of Illinois, is in the process of being modernized to a cloud-based system. We are at the halfway point and on track to invigorate payment processing for Illinois. The next exciting phase of the SAMSMod project (project nickname) will begin to focus on prioritizing training and readiness to achieve improved service/delivery and to empower the processing knowledge of system users.
Many resources are dedicated to this improvement, and we are committed to end-user knowledge, readiness, and our collective success! With that goal in mind, this site is where you will find thorough information and monthly progress reports from our tireless project team and leaders.
State Accounting is responsible for the audit and processing of over 13 million transactions a year.
Here you can find information and links for training available from the Comptroller' Office, as well as resources and forms related to the SAMS Modernization project. All training material is located in the Comptrollers Learning Management System (LMS).
Training for end users will take place October-November 2022.
