Document Number: 2016-11145
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-05-13
Agency: Federal Election Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Federal Election Commission (``Commission'') adopted a program on August 1, 2011, providing for a means by which persons and entities may have a legal question considered by the Commission earlier in both the report review process and the audit process. On October 23, 2013, the Commission revised this policy to provide an alternative electronic means to file a request with the Commission. This new policy is identical to the October 23, 2013 program, except that it makes two modifications: (1) To clarify that requests for consideration be submitted to the Commission Secretary to ensure that such request are processed in timely manner, and (2) to build five business days into the program to allow time for informal resolution of matters.
