Data Quality Statement
Accuracy of Campaign Data

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.
