Lobbyist Regulations & Political Consultant Reporting

Regulation of Lobbying Entities and Political Consultant Reporting Programs

*Note: recently proposed rule changes to the City's Lobbying regulations are undergoing public comment review and additional revisions. Proposed changes are not in effect and not finalized until posted and adopted by the City Auditor.*

The City's Lobbying Regulations and the Political Consulting Reporting program serve to improve transparency and inform the public of efforts to influence City Officials. Both programs are disclosure based, with information provided by City officials, lobbying entities, and certain political consultants. 

If you are a required filer, you can access forms, the online portal, and training materials on this website. Members of the public can find information about both programs, including all disclosure reports, frequently asked questions, administrative rules, and City Code Chapters 2.12 and 2.14. As of December 2017, all filings and reports are conducted through the Auditor's Office online filing portal. 

To make an anonymous report about suspected fraud or possible violations of City Code, including violations of the City's Lobbying or Political Consultant Reporting programs, please contact the Auditor's Fraud Hotline.
