Guide to Updating Your Filer List

As an ethics liaison, you are responsible for keeping a current list of your agency’s filers in eDisclosure. Updating your list of SEI filers and their contact information will help ensure that all of your agency’s filers will be adequately notified of their filing obligations. Use guide and forms below to keep your list of filers up-to-date.


Assuming & Leaving Office SEIs

An individual who begins working in or who leaves a designated filing position in your agency is required to file an assuming or leaving office statement of economic interests (SEI) within 30 days. As your agency’s ethics liaison, you are responsible for overseeing the assuming and leaving office SEI filing process for your agency. Review the documents below for step-by-step instructions on the assuming and leaving office process.


Paper SEI Filing Materials

Filers without email addresses in eDisclosure will not receive filing notices via email nor will they be able to file electronically. It is your responsibility to distribute the filing materials to these filers. Depending on the filing required, follow the applicable distribution instructions below. If you are unsure which filing is required, consultant the Types of Statements document.
