The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank), as a part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal Agencies to comment on the proposed information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The form represents the exporter's directive to Ex-Im Bank to whom and where the insurance proceeds should be sent, and also describes the duties and obligations that have to be met by the financial institution in order to share in the policy proceeds. The form is typically part of the documentation required by financial institution lenders in order to provide financing of an exporter's foreign accounts receivable. Foreign accounts receivable insured by Ex-Im Bank represent stronger collateral to secure the financing. By recording which policyholders have completed this form, Ex-Im Bank is able to determine how many of its exporter policyholders require Ex-Im Bank insurance policies to support lender financing. The form can be viewed at www.exim.gov/pub/pending/eib99-17.pdf.

The Export-Import Bank of the U.S. (Ex-Im Bank) pursuant to the Export-Import Bank Act of 1945, as amended (12 U.S.C. 635, et seq.), facilitates the finance of export of U.S. goods and services. By neutralizing the effect of export credit insurance and guarantees offered by foreign governments and by absorbing credit risks that the private sector will not accept, Ex-Im Bank enables U.S. exporters to compete fairly in foreign markets on the basis of price and product. This collection of information is used by exporters to convey legal rights to, and describe the duties and obligations that have to be met by their financial institution lender in order to share insurance policy proceeds from Ex-Im Bank approved insurance claims. The changes that were made to this agreement include language clarifications and changes to the descriptions of the rights and obligations of the parties to the agreement. The changes were made to provide clarity and specificity for exporters/lenders based on issues that have arisen through either exporter/lender inquiries or interpretations made during processing of claims. The language of the existing agreement frequently results in improper documentation by our lender partners which increases claim processing times and causes significant resource burdens to Ex-Im Bank. The language in the existing agreement also creates the potential for fraud, resulting in losses to Ex-Im Bank. Recent changes to the Ex-Im Bank Charter (12 U.S.C. 635(i)(2)(i) and a-6(b)) mandate that Ex-Im Bank must develop practices to identify, prevent and monitor for potential fraud. Therefore changes to the agreement were required to comply with this mandate and protect the U.S. taxpayer from fraud related loss. In addition, the changes to this agreement protect Ex-Im Bank's lender partners who are parties to the agreement, allowing us to maintain our relationships with our lender partners, and fulfill our agency mission to finance exports (through our lender partners) and create jobs. Due to the Ex-Im Bank Charter mandate to reduce fraud, the changes in the form need to be immediately disseminated to exporters/lenders so that they can change practices where needed, especially where documentation of export transactions is involved.

Our customers will be able to submit this form electronically. Ex-Im Bank plans to invite approximately 300 U.S. exporters and commercial lending institutions that have used Ex-Im Bank's short-, medium-, and long-term programs over the previous calendar year with an electronic invitation to participate in the online survey. The proposed survey, modified from the previous survey to account for new policies and programs, will ask participants to evaluate the competitiveness of Ex-Im Bank's programs and how the programs compare to those of foreign credit agencies. Ex-Im Bank will use the responses to develop an analysis of the Bank's competitiveness. The survey form can be viewed at www.exim.gov/pub/EIB00-02.pdf.

The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank), as a part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal Agencies to comment on the proposed information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Ex-Im Bank's borrowers, financial institution policy holders and guaranteed lenders provide this form to U.S. exporters, who certify to the eligibility of their exports for Ex-Im Bank support. For direct loans and loan guarantees, the completed form is required to be submitted at time of disbursement and held by either the guaranteed lender or Ex-Im Bank. For MT insurance, the completed forms are held by the financial institution, only to be submitted to Ex-Im Bank in the event of a claim filing. Ex-Im Bank believes that EIB 11-05 requires emergency approval in order to continue operation of its long- and medium-term financing programs. It is an integral component of the programs and is heavily used. Lack of an emergency approval of this form would preclude our ability to continue operation of its long- and medium-term financial institution programs. Ex-Im Bank developed the referenced form to obtain exporter certifications regarding the export transaction, content sourcing, and their eligibility to participate in USG programs. These details are necessary to determine the value and legitimacy of Ex-Im Bank financing support and claims submitted. It also provides the financial institutions a check on the export transaction's eligibility at the time it is fulfilling a financing request. Accordingly, Ex-Im Bank requests emergency approval of EIB 11-05 in order to continue operation of these important export programs. The form can be viewed at: www.exim.gov/pub/pending/eib11-05.pdf.
