How much financial information detail is required in the executive branch lobbying annual report?

The rule states that the following information is required to be reported:

“The total amount of payments received for each engagement during the past year.”

Additionally, “engagement” is defined as:

“any arrangement whereby a person receives financial consideration, in the form of salary, retainer, compensation, or other fee, for or on behalf of any employer or real party in interest to:
(A) influence an executive branch action; or
(B) conduct any executive branch lobbying activity.

Thus, an executive branch lobbyist is required to report the total amount of money the lobbyist received to engage in the lobbying activity. Any time there is a new “employer” or new “real party in interest,” there is a new engagement and the total amount of money received from that employer or real party in interest must be reported. This does not require a “breakdown” or itemization of specific instances of lobbying.  Given the language of the rule, you are not required to give an itemized list of payments received throughout the year.

For more information, see the Executive Branch Lobbyist Registration Rule, visit the Executive Branch Lobbyist website at http://www.in.gov/idoa/2885.htm  or call (317) 234-4431.
