The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), found in Section 552 of Title 5 of the United States Code, was enacted by Congress to provide the public with access to certain federal records. The Act requires federal agencies to produce government records in response to requests from the public, provided that the records are not exempt from disclosure by the FOIA.

The Export Import Bank, like all federal agencies, charges for processing FOIA requests. Much of the information typically sought by FOIA requesters is available free of charge on this website. EXIM Bank encourages all prospective FOIA requesters to thoroughly search this website prior to submission of a FOIA request.

EXIM Bank Transaction Participant Notice

Due to the high volume of Bank transactions and number of participants, EXIM Bank has determined that it would be unduly burdensome to review transaction participant information, such as street addresses and phone numbers, in order to discern if the provided information is personal information that would be protected under FOIA Exemption 6. The Bank has a high volume of small business participants who may use their personal information in the company fields. As such, the Bank will not publicly disclose participant street addresses and phone numbers.
