OGE Form 278-T

Do I Need to File an OGE Form 278-T (Periodic Transaction Report)?

You must file a Periodic Transaction report if:

  • you are in a position subject to the public financial disclosure requirements (“covered position”);
  • you served or are expected to serve in a covered position for more than 60 days; and
  • you have a reportable transaction.

You are not required to file a negative report if you have no reportable transactions.

How Do I File?

In most cases, individuals should file their reports electronically, either through Integrity, a web-based system developed and administered by OGE for executive-branch-wide use, or through another agency-supported electronic financial disclosure system. Contact your agency ethics official if you have any questions about getting access to the system used by your agency.

When Must I File?

Periodic transaction reporting is subject to two different due dates. Under the Ethics in Government Act, you need to file a report:

  • within 30 days of receiving notification of a transaction, but
  • not later than 45 days after the transaction.
