Political Party Committees must itemize/report coordinated party expenditures on Schedule F – Coordinated Party Expenditures. Coordinated Party Expenditures are similar to regular expenditures except they have some additional fields for the Designated Committee and Subordinate Committee.
Schedule F expenditures can be recorded in Crimson and then imported into CrimsonFiler or they can be uploaded directly into your CrimsonFiler FEC report.
**Please note: Refer to the CrimsonFiler: Expenditures guide on the HelpDesk for directions on how to enter expenditure data directly into FEC reports in CrimsonFiler.
