Form 801 – Payment to the Agency Report

This form is used to report certain payments received by state and local government agencies. It includes: a payment for an official’s travel expenses for the purpose of facilitating the public’s business in lieu of a payment using agency funds; and a payment that would otherwise be considered a gift or income to the benefiting official, but is instead accepted on behalf of the agency.

FPPC Regulations 18944 and 18950.1 provide a procedure that state and local agencies may use to disclose payments used for agency purposes and paid by a third party. The regulations’ reporting procedures provide an alternative means to disclose a payment that may otherwise be considered income or a gift to a benefitting employee and subject to reporting on a Statement of Economic Interest, Form 700.
