In the United States, Accenture maintains a political action committee (PAC) that is registered with the Federal Election Commission (FEC). The PAC makes Federal political contributions on a bipartisan basis to political parties, political committees and candidates. The PAC is not funded by corporate funds, but is fully funded by voluntary contributions made by our U.S. senior executives. The company does not penalize in any way senior executives who do not contribute to the PAC.
The PAC complies with all applicable laws concerning political contributions, including laws requiring public disclosure of such contributions. As permitted by law, corporate funds and facilities are used to provide administrative support for the PAC, including for the solicitation of contributions and the distribution of funds. All contributions made by the PAC are reported in filings with the FEC and are publicly available on the commission’s website. All PAC donations are also disclosed to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives in the company’s semi-annual filings required by the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act.
The PAC is managed by the Office of Government Relations (Government Relations), headed by a Managing Director who is a member of our United States Leadership Team. Government Relations approves all PAC contributions.
All PAC activities (including solicitation of senior executives and contributions to parties and candidates) are governed and overseen by its governing body, the PAC Committee, which includes senior leaders from across the company’s U.S. business. To Top
