'Fuzzy logic' improves OFAC search tool
WASHINGTON (2/8/13)--The U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has released an improved search tool for its Specially Designated National (SDN) list.

The new tool employs "fuzzy logic" so a user's search terms can be approximate rather than fixed or exact.  In addition to returning exact matches, the SDN Search can also provide a broader set of results using fuzzy logic.

The tool is in a beta test phase and will run in parallel with the older exact-character-match SDN search tool for approximately 30 days. It will then replace the older search tool.

Use the resource link for more information.  Feedback and suggestions about OFAC's new fuzzy logic tool can be sent to O_F_A_C@do.treas.gov.
