To help ensure that they meet the grant requirements established in the Government Code, counties should require benefit committee filing officers to avail themselves of the free training provided by the FPPC so that the filing officers are aware of and meet their responsibilities under the political reform act. Counties should also adhere to FPPC guidelines for notifying filers of the need to submit statements of economic interests.

Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From September 2012

The filing officer for the Yolo IGLCBC followed the notification guidelines established by the FPPC by working with the Yolo County Clerk/Recorder's office to notify IGLCBC members of their need to file FPPC Form 700 at least 30 days prior to the filing deadline. All IGLCBC members filed their Form 700 prior to the deadline, so there was no need to take additional action. While all IGLCBC members are currently in compliance with filing requirements, the County will require the filing officer to avail himself of free training opportunities from the FPPC as time and resources permit.
