The Challenge

A key aspect of the Governor’s campaign finance reform initiative is to make candidates’ financial reports available online.  Allowing for greater transparency and the ability for the public to have easier access.  The Pennsylvania Department of State, Campaign Finance Office is responsible for these campaign contributions and expenditure filings.

Campaign finance reports submitted in paper require document data extraction. Having editable data in a structured format is necessary to upload into the State’s database for inclusion online.  It’s crucial that the campaign filings be accurately entered and that data capture procedures conform to all the parameters surrounding finance report submissions.

The state needed an experienced vendor who could perform the data capture and extraction of the filings within 72 hours; error free.  This material is sensitive and the vendor needed to understand all the elements of campaign finance reports.

Our Solution

ILM’s 20 year prime contract with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) allowed us to hit the ground running.  Our decades of experience allowed for a rapid onboarding and testing of the document data extraction of the State’s campaign contributions and expenditures financial reports.  Leveraging existing business processes, programs and applications allowed for easy integration.  The State also wanted an automated workflow of delivering PDF images for us to process.  When completed to automatically transmit the files back to the State.  ILM implemented an automated workflow to handle these requirements with all of the necessary security, record logging and staff notifications.

The Results

Using advanced AI, OCR with human verification, reports are captured within the 72-hour time period meeting accuracy requirements. Data was generated that conformed to all the special requirements contained in the campaign financial reports.
