DFC recognizes that transparency, accountability, and proper stewardship of federal resources are critical to operating effectively and maintaining public trust.
The following is a guide to DFC’s many key transparency and accountability mechanisms and reporting documents.
- Freedom of Information Act
Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), DFC is obliged to respond to reasonably formulated requests for Agency records. However, DFC may apply exemptions from release to certain types of information. DFC, as required, has a designated FOIA officer who is trained in how to respond to requests and implement the law, and the officer publishes quarterly and annual reports online each year. Visit DFC's FOIA page to learn more.
The U.S. International Development Finance Corporation is committed to addressing the critical challenges facing the developing world today with integrity. The agency seeks to avoid situations in which an ethical question may cause uncertainty about the agency’s impact and mission by adherence to the regulations and guidance of the Office of Government Ethics (OGE). In addition to these important guideposts, the agency also has internal policies to avoid and address potential conflicts of interest and has published those policies in accordance with 22 U.S.C. § 9613(h)(3)(C).

The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (FFATA) mandates agencies to support a searchable public website of federal spending. USASpending.gov allows users to search by agency or by recipient, on contracts, loans, and other awards.
ForeignAssistance.gov is the U.S. Government's main tool for improving transparency in foreign assistance programs. The website will provide information about DFC’s projects alongside other US government development programs. The U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) was created by Congress in 2019 under the BUILD (Better Utilization of Investments Leading to Development) Act.
- Office of Accountabilty
DFC’s Office of Accountability is an independent office within DFC that addresses concerns, complaints, or conflicts about environmental or social issues that may arise around DFC-supported projects. It provides project-affected communities, project sponsors, and project workers an opportunity to have such concerns independently reviewed and addressed.
