|What is the FSEC Campaign?|
The Florida State Employees' Charitable Campaign, known as the “FSEC Campaign” or “FSECC”, is the only state-sanctioned charity drive among state employees in the workplace. Each year, state employees, who play a key role in conducting the campaign, generously contribute millions of dollars to their favorite charities through the FSECC. Until 1993, the campaign was authorized by a Cabinet Resolution. The 1993 Florida Legislature, however, authorized the campaign in Florida law, (Section 110.181, Florida Statutes), in order to address concerns that the Cabinet Resolution provided insufficient authority to promulgate legally binding rules for administering the campaign. The FSEC Campaign is housed, for administrative purposes, in the Department of Management Services (DMS), which provides program oversight and policy guidance through Rule 60L-39, Florida Administrative Code. A Statewide FSECC Steering Committee comprised of nine state employee representatives assists DMS in an advisory role. DMS also contracts with a Fiscal Agent (United Way of Florida, Inc.) to oversee various administrative and accounting duties with the assistance of 26 Fiscal Agent Area United Ways throughout the state.
