- State Ethics Commission
Boston, MA — The State Ethics Commission's SFI Team has sent the following message to appointed public employees who are required to file Statements of Financial Interests for Calendar Year 2019.
Dear SFI Filer,
Your agency has previously notified you that you are required to file a Statement of Financial Interests (“SFI”) for CY 2019. As an appointed public employee, your statutory deadline for filing is Friday, May 1, 2020. However, in light of the current COVID-19 crisis, the State Ethics Commission (“Commission”) recently voted to allow appointed public employees until Tuesday, May 26, 2020 to file their CY 2019 SFIs. As such, if you file by May 26th, your SFI will be deemed to be timely filed.
As a reminder, the Commission is not currently accepting in-person visits at its office because of the public health crisis. We strongly encourage you to file electronically using the Commission’s SFI system at https://www.sfi.eth.mass.gov/security/Login.aspx. If you file electronically, you will automatically receive a filing receipt by email after successfully submitting your SFI. If you would like to file manually, you can find the CY 2019 manual form on the Commission’s website at www.mass.gov/ethics. After completing the manual form, you need to send it by regular mail to the Commission.
As always, the SFI Team is available to assist you by phone or by email with your filing questions. Should you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the SFI Team members as indicated below.
For legal questions, for example, what do you need to report on your SFI, or concerns about the filing deadline, contact Lauren Duca, Deputy Chief/SFI, at (617) 371-9503 or Lauren.Duca@mass.gov.
For technical questions, for example, your password does not work, or your information is not being saved, contact Robert Milt, Government Affairs Officer, at 617-371-9512 or Robert.Milt@mass.gov; or Tony Webb, Information Technology Specialist, at (617) 371-9526 or Tony.Webb@mass.gov.
