How to track PAC expenses

When you set up a PAC record for an individual, you will need to assign either a  "V - vendor" or "L - Legislator" to the PAC type field.  When either of these codes are entered, the system will automatically allow information entered into the payee section.

You must establish PAC look-up codes to reflect your expenses.  

An example of how this can be utilized is when your association holds a Legislative Luncheon.  You can enter all of the payments to the hotel, specialty item provider or entertainment.  


All of the PAC contributions made to legislators on behalf of your association PAC.

The benefit of tracking the PAC expenses in SAMS is that the expenses will be included on the ethics committee report.
