One of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s key roles is to investigate and enforce potential violations of federal consumer finance laws. To track and organize those efforts, the CFPB uses an “enforcement matter management system” called ENForce.

On May 30, 2023, the Data Liberation Project filed a FOIA request for detailed tables from that system. On September 18, 2023, the agency provided a single spreadsheet in response, listing the amounts and dates of court-ordered relief and penalties in those enforcement matters.

Although the Data Liberation Project plans to appeal the agency’s response, we are providing the spreadsheet now, along with DLP-written documentation, so that the public can make use of it.
