CMS - Your Password is Expiring for the State of Illinois

I have received an email stating my password has expired for the state of Illinois. Is this a legitimate email or is this spam?

If you receive an email stating that your password has expired for the State of Illinois, it is a legitimate message. Regardless of whether you changed your initial password or not, CMS is expiring the password every 60 or 90 days. We must follow their password policies since this is a CMS system. This password is for the Procurement Reporting System and is not the enterprise password or net ID password and will not affect them.

The email will read:
*** IMPORTANT Notification from Central Management Services (CMS) ***
