* Disclosure forms do not require clients to state clearly the average cost per person. Calculating the average cost per person may not be as simple as dividing the total cost by the number of people attending. Because the forms and instructions are unclear, the amount listed can represent either the total cost of the event, the amount spent on only the officials who attended or the average cost per person.

# "Portion of Cost to Entertain Officials" was calculated based on this formula: (average cost per person x the number of executive or legislative officials present)
