Lobbyist Disclosure

Lobbyists Influencing the City

Contact Lobbyists

The San Francisco Lobbyist Ordinance requires contact lobbyists to register with the Commission and disclose activity on a monthly basis. The reports may be reviewed by browsing or searching the San Francisco lobbyist directory, downloading the reports in a variety of data formats from SF OpenData, or by querying the Lobbyist API.

Expenditure Lobbyists

An expenditure lobbyist is an individual or entity that spends $2,500 or more in a calendar month to solicit, request, or urge others to communicate directly with a City officer in order to influence local legislative or administrative action. City officers covered by this rule generally include elected City officials, members of City boards and commissions, and City department heads.
