1) Meets the new requirements for Political Committee filer types “PAC” (Political Action Committee) or “IPC” (Independent Committee).

2) Allows for data entry of new “Office Sought” requirements. MI now requires a 3-or-4 digit code when a disbursement is made to a candidate for the Office Sought of that candidate for Schedules 2B, 2B-1 & 2B-2. This can be found on the “Master Edit” screen, which can be located by clicking on the “…” (dot dot dot) button in the upper left hand side of the individual record:
**PLEASE NOTE** These fields were added to existing MI databases. If any other databases need these columns added to the Master Edit Table, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
If “OTH1” is used, the client must also fill in the applicable information for “MIDistrict” (District Number) and “MILocalOff” (Office Sought Description)
Missing codes will produce a warning; however, the state will not reject a filing if these office codes are not filled out. This means that old data entry DOES NOT need to be corrected.
