A key mission of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is to make the financial products and services that you use more transparent. Transparency is at the core of our agenda, and it is a key part of how we operate. You deserve to know what the new bureau is doing for the American public and how we are doing it.

- Publishing information to help you better understand the consumer financial services industry;
- Hosting ongoing discussions between the CFPB’s senior leadership and the general public; and
- Challenging the private sector to produce innovative ideas to benefit more consumers.
In addition to our commitment to openness, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires us to disclose certain types of information on request. The law requires a response within 20 business days in most cases, and our goal is to provide you the information you request within this established timeframe.
