14 March 2019 Dear Jose Pinpin, Greetings! Thank you for your request dated 11 February 2019 03:46:09 PM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch. Your request You asked for the Exchange of Notes for the 109-kilometer North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Extension Project. Response to your request While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance this Office does not have the information you have requested. Your request pertains to a loan agreement. Memorandum Circular No. 16, series of 2017, directs all departments to coordinate with the Department of Finance (DOF) on matters pertaining to loans, grants and guarantees. Upon evaluation of your request, bearing in mind that the DOF is the repository of all loan agreements, permission to access the subject loan agreement must, therefore, be obtained from the DOF. Considering that the DOF has already denied your previous request, the DFA is constrained from approving this request. For further assistance, you may review the FAQ section of the eFOI site: https://foi.gov.ph/help. Your right to request a review If you are unhappy with this response to your FOI request, you may ask us to carry out an internal review of the response by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Respectfully, FOI Decision Maker FOI Officer
