The 1417 Campaign Information System has also been updated to record PCFO EFT information in the EFT and Payroll Contact Information Section. Effective February 2006, campaigns must enter and update their EFT information in the 1417. Access to the EFT and payroll sections of the 1417 is available year-round at: http://www.opm.gov/aboutus/CombinedFederalCampaign/FindLocalCampaigns/index.aspx#Information System Online. EFT and Payroll information is not available to the public and is only released to Federal payroll providers for the proper and timely disbursement of aggregated donor pledges. Changes made to a campaigns' EFT information will be communicated to Federal payroll offices in the monthly CFC update that is issued on the 1st of the following month. It is the responsibility of each PCFO to ensure that its EFT information is up-to-date.
