Requirements

Electronic filing requires the use of special data formatting and upload procedures that can best be accomplished by software written specifically for this purpose. The software must be capable of creating a file in the proper format, validating and encrypting the file and uploading the file to the FEC.

Vendor tools

The vendor tool package download includes:

  • Electronic filing specifications: format layouts and technical specifications for all reports and schedules required to be filed with the FEC.

  • Validation software: a program designed to check files, ensuring compliance with the format requirements. Sample files that comply with the validation specifications are also included.

  • Upload utility and report image rendering: files necessary to upload validated reports to the FEC website using TCP/IP and SSL, as well as files necessary to render a report image from data.

The Web services includes:

  • Electronic filing specifications: format layouts and technical specifications for all reports and schedules required to be filed with the FEC.

  • Web check: audits report data looking for problems with structure, format, and various other aspects of the data. A report is produced showing any problems found, providing you an opportunity to make corrections prior to uploading the report.
