I was very pleased
Evans & Katz was instrumental in helping us get our campaign off the ground. They set up our systems so we could hit the ground running. Everything went very smoothly, and when we got a major, unexpected endorsement, the E&K team responded immediately to help us deposit a high number of small campaign contributions. They managed the processing of our contributions so we could focus on winning the election. I was very pleased with their services.
E&K helped us tighten up
E&K helped us tighten up our internal controls to make sure we are following FEC guidelines and best practices and staying as compliant as possible. It’s resulted in a cleaner, easier, smoother process for us. It’s also meant that we’ve had no letters or concerns with the FEC.
E&K has been really great for us
We’ve been working with them for about four years, and the reality is there are never any problems. Things just get done. It’s an easy working relationship, and we love all the people who work there. E&K has been really great for us.
They’re responsive and available
Compliance can take up a lot of time, and if it’s done wrong can cause massive heartburn. E&K took those concerns off our plate and allowed us to do the hard work of campaigning. They’re responsive and available, they know compliance and the FEC process, and they were great to work with.
highest degree of excellence
Sometimes I forget they’re a vendor—they have become a full member of the team. We don’t ever have to worry about compliance being done right, on time, and with highest degree of excellence. I never doubt their ability to fully meet our needs.
E&K is our virtual back-office
E&K is our virtual back-office as far as processing and fulfilling contributions to candidates from our political action committee and organizing that information to file the appropriate FEC reports. This allows our PAC professional to focus on expanding the PAC and other duties so his time is not focused on processing checks and making sure things are appropriately handled and tabulated for FEC reports.
It has been so helpful
There were times when we decided to get involved in an election and we learned we needed to register in a state or municipality and cut a PAC check in 24-to-48 hours. Evans & Katz turned things around quickly, and was always there when we needed them, regardless of the time of day. It has been so helpful to have an outside firm who can handle the complexities for each state and municipality, making sure we’re up to date on our filings and avoiding missteps along the way.
understanding of our needs
We ultimately selected E&K because they offered a customized solution at a competitive price, they were able to work with any software vendor, and they had the best understanding of our needs. We also appreciated that they worked extensively in the progressive community.
I’m very satisfied with them
Each state is different, and E&K gives us insight about working within the different state rules. They are not afraid to let you know if something is not going to be correct for compliance reasons. They will give us a head’s up. E&K is easy to work with. Everyone there is motivated, driven, and knows what she is doing. I’m very satisfied with them.
Their response time is amazing
E&K invests in you. They become part of your team. Their response time is amazing — it is as if they are really there in the room with you. They help you to take that next step to make sure you don’t make mistakes that could really set you back. Campaigns need to make as few mistakes as possible, and E&K makes sure that happens.
