David A. Lebryk was appointed the first Commissioner of the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) on October 7, 2012, when the Financial Management Service (FMS) and the Bureau of the Public Debt consolidated into one bureau.
Commissioner Lebryk provides leadership, policy direction and guidance for the bureau's debt financing and financial management programs. The bureau issues over one billion in federal payments worth $2.4 trillion to more than 100 million people; collects nearly $3.2 trillion in federal revenues each year; and collects more than $6.2 billion in delinquent debts. The Fiscal Service is responsible for the issuance of more than $7.7 trillion in marketable securities to finance the public debt. The bureau manages a daily cash flow of more than $67 billion and accounts for the federal government's debt of more than $16 trillion. The Fiscal Service produces the Daily and Monthly Treasury Statements, the Monthly Statement of the Public Debt, and the Financial Report of the United States Government.
