This website provides information about bonds, notes, and other securities issued or secured by the District of Columbia (the “District”).
Because each security may involve different sources of payment and security, different obligations (if any) of the issuer and/or any obligated person, and different limitations on such obligations, you should refer to the official statement of any particular security for additional information.

2. Dates of Documents
Any financial document contained on this website is marked with a Dated Date and speaks only as of that Dated Date, which may be prior to the date it is posted on this website. You are cautioned not to assume that any information has been updated beyond the Dated Date unless a document expressly states that it constitutes an update of a specific portion of a document. No inference should be made that the operations of the District or related entities and/or other economic conditions have remained the same since the Dated Date. The District expressly disclaims any duty to provide an update of any document contained on this website.

8. Bond Ratings
This website includes current ratings on certain of the District’s bonds.

Contact information of an analyst at each rating agency is provided on the website under “Bond Ratings.” The ratings included on this website may be changed at any time and no assurance can be given that they will not be revised, downgraded, or withdrawn entirely by any such rating agencies. Any such downgrade, revision, or withdrawal of a rating may have an adverse effect on the market price of or market for such District bonds.
