The Commission annually publishes an alphabetical listing of acronyms, abbreviations and common names of political action committees (PACs).
For each PAC listed, the index provides the full name of the PAC, its city, state, FEC identification number and, if not identifiable from the full name, its connected, sponsoring or affiliated organization.
This index is helpful in identifying PACs that are not readily identified in their reports and statements on file with the FEC.
To order a free copy of PACronyms, call the FEC's Disclosure Division at 800/424-9530 or 202/694-1120.
PACronyms is also available on diskette for $1 and can be accessed free on the FEC web site at www.fec.gov.
Other PAC indexes, described below, may be ordered from the Disclosure Division. Prepayment is required.
- An alphabetical list of all registered PACs showing each PAC’s identification number, address, treasurer and connected organization ($13.25).
- A list of registered PACs arranged by state providing the same information as above ($13.25).
- An alphabetical list of organizations sponsoring PACs showing the name of the PAC and its identification number ($7.50).
The Disclosure Division can also conduct database research to locate federal political committees when only part of the committee name is known. Call the telephone numbers above for assistance or visit the Public Records Office in Washington at 999 E St. NW.
