How to File
Form SFEC-126f4 must be filed electronically through the City and County of San Francisco’s DocuSign system, which may be initiated at the bottom of this page. The DocuSign filing process involves two key steps – completing the form and signing the form – which may involve between one to eight participants. The form allows a City department staff member to initiate and complete the form electronically, optionally route it to up to three additional department staff assisting with the completion of the form, and then send it to Clerk of the Board’s office for review and signature by the Clerk of the Board. The City department staff person completing the form may need to obtain information about the contract from multiple internal and external parties, including the elected official/clerk of the board and support staff, contracting department, and contractor. (Note: When completing the electronic form, select “Amended” from the drop down only to amend an original or previously amended filing. “Amended” should not be used to identify an amended or modified contract).
After the form is completed by City department staff, an email will automatically be sent to the Clerk of the Board’s staff to review the document and assign a file number. The Clerk of the Board will sign the document after the contract has been approved by the Board of Supervisors. City department staff can monitor the progress of a SFEC-126f4 filing submitted to the Clerk of the Board’s office by logging in to DocuSign using Citywide authentication credentials (City email address and citywide password).
When completing this form, if you run out of space to provide all the information that the form requires, you must submit a supplemental form that contains the remaining information. Be sure to use the same identifying information on the supplemental form so that the supplemental form may be connected to the original form. However, you do not need to disclose information, such as the names of listed subcontractors, that you already listed on the original form.
Important: For a contract that must be approved by both the Board of Supervisors(BOS) and Mayor, departments should e-file only one 126f4 for BOS approval. Do not submit a second filing for Mayor.
