- We ensure that the cash flowing into and out of Treasury’s account is managed efficiently, effectively and securely.
- We protect your financial interests by identifying and preventing improper payments, providing efficient receivables management and collection of delinquent debt.
- The strength of our accounting controls is reflected in the unqualified positive audit opinions we have consistently received on our "Schedules of Federal Debt."
- Our Administrative Resource Center is recognized by the Office of Management & Budget (OMB) as a Center of Excellence for financial management.
We also have a successful federal-state partnership to recover delinquent debt, which collected more than $3 billion in delinquent debts on behalf of state governments in fiscal year 2013. This includes recoveries of delinquent child support and state income tax obligations, unemployment insurance compensation fraud debts, and more. In return, states are recovering overdue debts for the federal government.
Our Annual Report to the States provides important information to the American public describing how all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and three territories maximize their delinquent debt recovery efforts through participation in the Treasury Offset Program (TOP). In each of the last five years, federal collections for delinquent debts owed to states have ranged between $2.5 billion and $3.2 billion.
