Starting in May 2020, the Department of the Treasury began using this Case Management System (CMS), which allows parties and counsel/representatives to submit all transaction-related information to CFIUS through a secure web portal hosted by the Department of the Treasury.
Persons planning to file a notice or submit a declaration must create an account at ID.me, a secure online identity verification platform. An ID.me account is required in order to access the CFIUS CMS.

Section 721 of the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended, mandates confidentiality protections with respect to information filed with the Committee. It prohibits the Committee from publicly disclosing any information filed with the Committee, subject to limited exceptions. Information and documentary material filed with the Committee are also exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552. Consistent with section 721, the Committee does not publicly confirm nor deny that a transaction has been notified to CFIUS. If the parties themselves publicly disclose documentary material or information filed with CFIUS, such documentary material or information may subsequently be reflected in the public statements of the Chairperson of CFIUS.
