UW–Madison Federal Lobbying Reporting Process

UW–Madison is required by the Federal Lobby Disclosure Act of 1995 to report authorized lobbying on behalf of the University. The reports are filed quarterly in January, April, July, and October, by the UW–Madison Chancellor’s Office and the Vice Chancellor for Administration. Also, some additional lobbying related activities are reported semi-annually. Each quarter, UW–Madison Vice Chancellors and Deans submit information concerning federal lobbying activities and expenses to the Chancellor’s office prior to the reporting deadline.

For more information on whether your activities need to be reported, please review this Q&A about the Federal Lobbying Disclosure Act (PDF). Also, please consult your Dean or Vice Chancellor’s Office for additional details on the process for reporting lobbying activities.
