Funding Model: Fixed Cost Contract through GSA Schedule 70
Launch Date: 1997
Another example of our expertise in information dissemination at the federal level is NIC’s contract with the FEC. The FEC processes all electronic filings of financial data for presidential, congressional, and senatorial campaigns through an outsourced contract with NIC. It is essential
that the FEC data be processed and stored exactly as it is received, and NIC has been successfully entrusted with this process for more than 12 years. Our solution encompasses:
- Processing all electronic filings – which are mandatory for federal offices with the exception of U.S. Senate filings.
- Providing the systems and processes to guarantee that filings are securely encrypted, transmitted, validated, and issued unique identifying numbers.
- Retaining data in various output files and providing tools to render data in image or printed form – while also guaranteeing the security and integrity of all past electronically filed data.
- Processes the campaign finance data to be easily searchable by the public.
