You have made the decision to run for office but are unsure where to even begin on setting up your committee. The skilled team at PDS can help you set the process in motion. From filing the initial registration documentation, to acquiring a tax ID and opening a bank account, setting up payroll for employees and helping to get the basic infrastructure in place for the compliance and finance operation of your committee, PDS can help ensure the rollout of your committee goes as smoothly as possible.
There are times where follow-up communication with donors is required, whether for further clarification on previously made contributions, re-designation and re-attribution requests, verifying the permissibility of a contribution or following up with a donor to request their employer and occupation based on the FEC’s best efforts standard, the team at PDS is setup with the equipment needed to get these letters out in a timely matter and at scale when necessary. We can also assist in processing and sending out any donor thank you letters if that is something desired.
When it is time to file reports with the FEC it is important to make sure that all of this is happening in a professional and timely manner. These reports are instantly available to the press and political opponents, so PDS understands that accuracy is of the utmost importance. Our standard practices build in for extra availability during filing periods and our multi-tiered internal process for generating and filing reports ensures that multiple people, in consultation with committee staff and it’s legal counsel, will review and sign off on any regular interval reporting before it is uploaded.
