Washington, DC – Sagac Public Affairs and the Graduate School of Political Management (GSPM) of George Washington University are today publishing the sixth report on the results of the “Trends in Federal Business Political Action Committees.” This study was conducted between January 30 – March 24, 2015 covering a sample of more than 2,000 federal business political action committees to evaluate fundraising, communication and disbursement activities during the last election cycle.
“The goal of this research, along with all of the PAC research Sagac has provided over the last decade is to identify the most successful fundraising, communication and political giving tactics being employed in the marketplace,” said Trey Richardson, Managing Partner of Sagac.
According to Dr. David Rehr of GSPM, “The findings from this study will give individuals working for business political action committees (PACs) and those studying PACs the opportunity to find out what is working and what could be enhanced in this very important sector of American politics.”
The study was first developed by Sagac Public Affairs in 2004 to uncover trends in business PAC programming and is conducted every two years. This particular round of research was organized exclusively by Sagac, GSPM, the National Association of Business Political Action Committees and Lobbyists.INFO. It assesses the latest trends in fundraising, communications and disbursements of federal qualified funds, as well as corporate political expenditures.
Sagac Public Affairs is a national company providing communications, research, fundraising and management solutions to hundreds of political, non-profit and corporate organizations.
