How Georgia is Revolutionizing Ethics Administration

ORLANDO, FL (September 23, 2001) – A new case study was published today highlighting the innovation of the Georgia Government Transparency & Campaign Finance Commission.

Among other responsibilities, the Commission administers and enforces the provisions of the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Act – collecting campaign contribution disclosure reports, personal financial disclosure reports, and lobbyist disclosure reports.

It’s not an easy job, especially considering the Commission had been relying on a decades-old legacy system that primarily depended on paper forms that were electronically stored. It lacked robust auditing features, so enforcement was a painstaking, often time-consuming process.

The Commission knew there was a better way and partnered with Civix to completely overhaul and modernize their system, which recently launched and is the subject of a newly published case study. In it, the Commission’s Director of Business Operations Erwin Yap says, “Civix offered the most comprehensive out-of-the-box system. It’s one that we were able to modify to meet our unique requirements. It brought together campaign finance and personal disclosures into a single, seamless system.”
