The District of Columbia Office of Campaign Finance hereby presents the January 31, 2013 Biennial Report, which covers the contributions and expenditures of candidates and political committees for the period from January 2011 through December 2012.

For the cover letter with a table of content and the full PDF version of this document, select 2013 Political Campaign Committees Biennial Report and Introduction Letter.

DC Official Code, Section 1-1163.04(7) (2001 Edition, as amended), requires the Director of the Office of Campaign Finance to present to the Mayor, the Council, and the general public, commencing on January 31, 2001, and every two years thereafter, a biennial report, summarizing the receipts and expenditures of candidates for public office (except candidates for Advisory Neighborhood Commission Member) and political, exploratory, inaugural, transition, and legal defense committees in the prior two year period. Future reports will report the information for each exploratory, inaugural, transition, and legal defense committee which organizes and registers with the Office of Campaign Finance.

The January 31, 2013 Biennial Report depicts contributions by the size of the donation and donor type, in dollar amount and percentage terms, and expenditures by various categories, in dollar amount and percentage terms. Graphs are used to present the percentage terms. Since the submission of the first Biennial Report on January 31, 2001, the Office of Campaign Finance has developed Summary Reports at the OCF website, following each statutory filing deadline, which detail for the reporting period, the dollar amount and percentages associated with receipts by donor type and amount, and expenditures by various categories. These Summary Reports provide the foundation for the cumulative 2013 Biennial Report.

Specifically, the Biennial Report contains the following information:

  1. A summary of each candidate’s receipts, in dollar amount and percentage terms, by donor categories such as the candidate, individuals, political party committees, other political committees, corporations, partnerships, and labor organizations.

A summary of each candidate’s receipts, in dollar amount and percentage terms, by the size of the donation, including donations of $2000 or more; donations of $1000 or more but less than $2000; donations of $500 or more but less than $1000; donations of $250 or more but less than $500; donations of $100 or more but less than $250; and donations of less than $100.
  3. The total amount of a candidate’s receipts and expenditures, respectively, for primary and general elections, when applicable.
