Jurisdictional Contact Training

Jurisdictional Contact Responsibilities

A person designated by a public body as defined in ORS 174.109, is considered a Jurisdictional Contact (JC).  JCs are responsible for explaining the requirements of ORS 244.050, ORS 244.060, ORS 244.070 and ORS 244.090 to each newly elected or appointed public official serving the public body who is required to file a verified statement of economic interest (SEI) report under ORS 244.050.

The JCs role also includes maintaining an up-to-date listing of their public officials in the OGEC's Electronic Filing System (EFS).  

February 15th Deadline

JCs must verify that the listing is up-to-date by clicking on the "Finalize List" button in the JC's EFS account by February 15th of each year.  


In this live monthly webinar, learn about your responsibilities as a JC and how to create and manage your user profile. We'll also discuss how to manage the positions within the jurisdictions assigned to you, and see which public officials in your jurisdiction(s) have filed their annual SEI report. This training is designed for new JCs and existing JCs that need a review. 

To register for one of the monthly JC webinars, please go to the Monthly Webinar calendar.
