The Office of Campaign Finance Recently made enhancements to its Electronic Filing and Reporting System to better assist filers when submitting their Reports of Receipts & Expenditures (OCF Form 16). The enhancements include.
1. Address auto-complete: The contributor address will be auto-populated as you type. This integrated with all the USPS address database through SmartyStreets API. The system also prevents entering addresses not available in USPS database.
2. Contributors List and auto-complete: We have provided a contributors lookup list to choose a contributor if they have contributed before. In addition, the system also auto-completes contributor information if already present.
3. Previous contributor validation: The system checks if similar contributor exists in the database by comparing the sound of the contributor name. This allows prevention of typo and duplication of contributor information
