Federal Lobbying Expense Reporting Form

Please fill out the Federal Lobbying Information Form and submit it in a timely manner for each quarterly reporting period.

In completing the Lobbying Information Form, please keep in mind the following parameters:

  • Please return your completed form on or before the 10th of the month of the reporting period (i.e., January 10, April 10, July 10 and September 10).
  • Where lobbying expenses on behalf of the University include events such as receptions, dinners or similar types of hospitality, the portion of the expenses attributable to legislators or federal officials should be calculated on a per capita basis. For example, if the total cost of a reception which includes five legislators and 100 total attendees is $1,000, then the hospitality expense which should be reported for each legislator is 5% of the $1,000 or $50.
