About Us

Public Affairs Support Services, Inc. (PASS) was established in 1984 to help public affairs executives manage the countless tasks associated with campaign finance activities. Now, almost three decades later, PASS is still the PAC management and PAC compliance service for organizations that are serious about campaign finance compliance.

It’s their experience that they bring to the table. We have no one in house that could dedicate the resources like they can. That’s why we keep them vs. bringing it in house.

Corporate PAC Manager

BSA did not have the internal ‘bandwidth’ (staff expertise) required so we looked externally for a PAC management firm. We interviewed a couple vendors, but liked the personal touch that PASS offered. No question is too mundane for the staff and I’m able to obtain quick responses. PASS is a good value for the cost and perfect for BSA’s needs. They provide a flexible approach and tailor their services to the needs of their customers.

Software Association Client

They do everything I need them to do. They complete my reports on a timely basis. They give me internal management reports when I want them. And they answer their phone. In this day of voicemail and phone tag, this is really great.

Vice PresidentGovernment Relations

PASS is the only firm we identified that could provide all tracking and processing services. We did not have the staff expertise to ensure compliance, and budget limitations precluded us from hiring a full-time PAC manager. IACP sees a real advantage in contracting out this function.

Association Client

PASS provides good, responsive service for a reasonable price.
