Review of the Florida Export Finance Corporation, Report No. 97-59, March 1998
Full report in PDF format

  • The Florida Export Finance Corporation (FEFC) has effectively leveraged its resources with those of the private sector and federal government to provide financing assistance to Florida exporters.
  • The FEFC reports that since its inception in 1993, it has supported $308 million in export sales value and over 4,400 jobs. However, the FEFC’s methodology for estimating jobs supported may not be appropriate.
  • Although its customers pose a higher risk than typical bank borrowers, FEFC has not yet suffered a loan default.
  • The FEFC reports that it will become financially self-sufficient in Fiscal Year 1998-99 and will no longer require state funding support.
  • The FEFC needs to improve its performance measurement system to provide better methods for collecting performance information.
