Year 2016 Audit Selection

For the 2016 audit cycle, the Ethics Commission will be auditing 15 campaign committees.

For the 2016 audit cycle, the Ethics Commission will be auditing 15 campaign committees in connection with their activities in 2016, pursuant to the Commission’s authority under San Francisco Charter Section C3-699-11(4) and San Francisco Campaign and Governmental Code (“SF C&GCC”) Section 1.150.

The 15 campaign committees were selected from a pool of 101 committees that were active in elections during the calendar year 2016. The audit pool of 101 committees was categorized into the three following categories: non-publicly-funded candidate-controlled committees, general purpose committees, and ballot measure committees. The committees that are being audited for this cycle are the top five highest spending committees among each of these categories.
