Agency Information Collection Activities: Comment Request

AGENCY: Export-Import Bank of the United States.

ACTION: Submission for OMB review and comments request.


    Form Title: EIB 12-01 Medium-Term Master Guarantee Agreement 
Disbursement Approval Request.

SUMMARY: 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 has developed an electronic disbursement approval 
processing system for guaranteed lenders with transactions documented 
under Medium-term Master Guarantee Agreements. After an export 
transaction has been authorized by Ex-Im Bank and legal documentation 
has been completed, the lender will obtain and review the required 
disbursement documents (e.g. invoices, bills of lading, Exporter's 
Certificates, etc.) and will disburse the proceeds of the loan for 
eligible goods and services. In order to obtain approval of the 
disbursement, the lender will access and complete an electronic 
questionnaire through Ex-Im Bank's automatic application system (ExIm 
Online). Ex-Im Bank's action (approved or declined) will be posted on 
the lender's history page.
    The information collected will assist in determining that each 
disbursement under a Medium-Term Guarantee meets all of the terms and 
conditions for approval.
    The application can be reviewed at: www.exim.gov/pub/pending/eib12-01 MT MGA Disbursement Approval Request.

DATES: Comments should be received on or before April 15, 2013 to be 
assured of consideration.
