The State Ethics Commission recently partnered with SC.gov to make the State Ethics Commission Website and Public Disclosure and Accountability Reporting Application mobile-friendly. Campaign finance reports are available at http://apps.sc.gov/PublicReporting/Index.aspx and show the public what individuals and interests donate to candidates and committees, and how the money is spent. Lobbying reports also provide information on relationships, subjects, contributions and expenditures related to lobbying activity.
The application and website use responsive design, which means the view conforms to any device – desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone. The system is available 24/7 and information is available to the public as soon as reports are filed.
The State Ethics Commission site contains information about Rules of Conduct, Ethics Complaints and Advisory Opinions, and more. The Public Disclosure and Accountability Reporting search enables users to search by individual or committee/organization names, contributions and expenditures. Users can also sort and download their search results.
This application improves government transparency by making the information immediately available to the public to query, view, download and print. The application and the State Ethics Commission website was created and is maintained at no cost through a partnership between the State Ethics Commission and SC.gov.
