EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Approval of this agreement extends the current agreement with Netfile, Inc. for a period of three years. Netfile provides a secure administration system of electronic submission (e-filing) of Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Campaign Finance Disclosure forms and Statements of Economic Interest (Form 700), as mandated by the Political Reform Act and the City's Conflict of Interest Code. The agreement allows for two additional 1-year extensions.


BACKGROUND
The Redondo Beach Municipal Code mandates online electronic filing of FPPC Campaign Finance Disclosure Statements and Statements of Economic Interest (Form 700), public documents, as identified in the Political Reform Act (PRA) and the City's Conflict of Interest Code. The City entered into an agreement with Netfile on September 6, 2016 to build and maintain the Redondo Beach electronic filing platform.

Upon successful electronic submission, filings required by the PRA or submission of Form 700's (Title 87200) to the FPPC are automatically transmitted via Netfile, which is publicly accessible on their website as well as on the City's website (public portal).

Netfile's support and e-filing assistance has been exceptional over the course of the existing agreement. Since contracting with Netfile in 2016, 229 California agencies utilize Netfile e-filing systems.
