FEC ANNOUNCES NEW SEARCH SYSTEM FOR AUDIT REPORTS
WASHINGTON – The Federal Election Commission today launched a new search system for accessing audit reports on its website. The Audit Finding Search System allows users to search all approved audit reports using a two-level listing of categories that helps users narrow their research to the most relevant documents. The results display all documents pertaining to the audit report.
All audit reports for the 1986 election cycle to date are available on-line, and most of those from 1990 forward are searchable. In coming months, all the audit reports will be searchable.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that administers and enforces federal campaign finance laws. The FEC has jurisdiction over the financing of campaigns for the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, the Presidency and the Vice Presidency. Established in 1975, the FEC is composed of six Commissioners who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
