Lobbyists on Behalf of the City Reporting


Lobbyists on Behalf of the City must file a “Quarterly Report of Lobbyist on Behalf of the City” each quarter in which they meet the qualifying threshold.

Filers must report the all financial expenditures by the lobbyist in connection with representing the City & County of San Francisco, the individual or entity to whom each expenditure was made, the date the expenditure was made, and specifically identify the local, State, regional or national legislative or administrative action the lobbyist supported or opposed in making the expenditure.

The failure to file a quarterly report with the required disclosures is a violation of the Sunshine Ordinance.
