To ensure compliance, vendors with expiring IDHR Numbers should submit their online renewal application at least 30 days before license expiration you may submit as early as 90 days prior to expiration. If approval of the renewal is not received seven (7) business days before expiration, contractors should notify the contracting State agency or university immediately.
