FEC ANNOUNCES REPORTS ANALYSIS DIVISION WEB PAGE, NEW FEATURE OF ITS CONCILIATION PRACTICE
WASHINGTON – The Federal Election Commission this week unveiled a new web page designed to assist filers with the reporting of campaign finance activity, the latest endeavor in the Commission’s ongoing efforts to expand transparency.
The new page is segmented by filer type to address easily the reporting and filing needs of candidate and party committees, PACs, and other filers, and provides helpful links and reporting resources to assist the filing community with disclosure requirements. The new page also provides guidance on the processes and procedures of the Reports Analysis Division (RAD), which helps with the accurate and timely disclosure of campaign finance activity, and reviews financial disclosure reports submitted to the Commission.
“As we enter this presidential election year, the Reports Analysis Division web page will be a vitally important, ‘one-stop’ resource for political committees. I would like to thank the members of the Reports Analysis Division and the Office of Chief Information Officer, who worked collaboratively on this new page,” said Chair Caroline C. Hunter.
The RAD web page released at http://www.fec.gov/rad/ provides the following:
In the coming weeks, committees will be able to use this web page to find contact information for their RAD campaign finance analysts.
The Commission on Thursday also announced that it is now beginning to provide to respondents, in writing, the method used to determine the Commission’s opening settlement offer at the conciliation stage of certain enforcement matters. This information will be included with the proposed conciliation agreement.
These newest initiatives are part of the Commission’s ongoing efforts to make its processes more transparent, including the following:
