The Financial Disclosure Law, G.L. c. 268B, requires that all state and county elected officials, candidates for state and county office and "designated" state and county employees annually disclose their financial interests and private business associations. "Designated" employees are those individuals who hold major policy-making positions within their employing agencies.

Chapter 268B requires annual disclosure of interests and associations which might give rise to conflict or the appearance of conflict between a person's public responsibilities and his private interests.

In FY 2002, the Commission introduced an electronic Statement of Financial Interests (SFI) application that 49% of all filers took advantage of. Currently over 85% of all SFIs are now electronically submitted.
