As of February 2015, every one of the Export-Import Bank files originally available on Data.gov have been removed.
On this site, we are now providing the full dataset that was once available on Data.gov that provides detailed information about the Export-Import Bank's activities from FY2007 through FY2014.
We are also including separate state-by-state datasets with information about the Export-Import Bank's beneficiaries from across the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
The dataset below used to be available in its entirety on Data.gov. The file includes information on every reported application that the Export-Import Bank received from 2007 through 2014 (when it was pulled down), along with information about which were approved or denied, what type of financing was sought or issued and by how much, a description of the products that were financed, and the identity of each primary party to a transaction, including the applicant, the exporter, the supplier, the borrower, the buyer, and the source of repayment.
The parties responsible for maintaining this dataset on Data.gov mysteriously decided to remove this information without announcement or explanation by at least September of 2014.
Fortunately, we saved a clean copy of this important public resource before the dataset disappeared.
On February 13, 2015, two days after this site launched, Ex-Im data reappeared on Data.Gov. The new dataset was not identical to the one we posted. It contained only authorizations, not applications that had been denied. The new dataset also contained some additional records from 2014.
In addition, the new dataset varies from the old one by containing different fields. Importantly, the new dataset lacks the "Primary Buyer," "Primary Source of Repayment," and "Primary Supplier" fields, which are valuable to the public in evaluating Ex-Im loans.

The Export-Import Bank continues to make some data available by state, but not in a machine-readable format. We have compiled the data from the website into Excel spreadsheets.
Because the Ex-Im Bank claims to provide critical support to small business, we have also broken out small business loans into a secondary sheet in each state file.
