Good afternoon, Ms./Mr. Ciaramella! (Can you tell me if you are a lady or a gentleman?)

Thank you for your request! You mentioned that your correspondence was a "follow up to a previous request", but we have checked our FOIA Log and past E-Mails and have not received a previous request from you or anyone else asking about "Abangoa".

In order to facilitate our search, could you please tell me what type of information you are seeking? The request is somewhat broad and we will need additional information before we can begin our search. Can you tell me what "Abangoa" refers to? Are you looking for information about a specific Ex-Im Bank transaction? There are over 30 FOIA requests ahead of this one in our queue and, as you may be aware, the FOIA statute requires Federal Agencies to process requests in the order in which they are received. However, if you are able to narrow the scope of your request or clarify exactly what you are looking for or what you are trying to find out, we may be able to put this request on the faster "track". I would be happy to give you a call to discuss if you would provide me with a phone number.

Thank you again for your inquiry, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
