Quick Entry – Ability to add new Federal Committees at time of look up from the COSMOS database. Users searching for a committee will be shown committees that reside in their 360 database as well as those available through COSMOS data (FEC Committees).

 Users may select to import a committee from COSMOS to add to their 360 database and then process their transaction. This is extremely effective in accurately creating committee data to your 360 database without the burden of creating the committee from scratch.  Faster and More Accurate.

Note: Currently the functionality supports adding Federal Committees Only. We are working to update the COSMOS database to support State Committees in the future.
