In July 2002, candidates, political committees, lobbyists, and
public officials will be able to file their reports electronically
with the OCF.
Data filed electronically goes directly into the OCF database. OCF
does not alter electronic filing submissions.
For paper submissions, OCF staff makes every effort to enter data
that accurately reflects the information reported by the filer.
OCF also conducts random quality assurance checks to verify that
the data entered into the database matches the information reported
by the filer.
OCF conducts desk reviews to measure compliance after the data has
been entered into the database. Consequently, the data entered into
the database reflects only the information reported by the filer;
the OCF staff does not corroborate on the data.
