About Us

The Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) was established on October 7, 2012, with the consolidation of two Treasury Department bureaus: the Bureau of the Public Debt (BPD) and the Financial Management Service (FMS).

BPD financed government operations, accounted for the resulting public debt, and provided financial and administrative services to federal agencies. FMS supplied central payments and collections and deposit services for the federal government and prepared the financial statements of the federal government.

By combining these responsibilities, the Bureau of the Fiscal Service transforms the way the federal government manages its financial services. The Fiscal Service delivers inter-agency administrative services with more efficiency, transparency, and accountability than ever before.

At Fiscal Service, We:

Operate the federal government’s collections and deposit systems, overseeing a daily cash flow of over $103.2 billion.

Borrow the money needed to operate the federal government through the sale of Treasury bills, bonds and notes and account for the resulting debt.

Provide central payment services to federal program agencies.

Provide governmentwide accounting and reporting services, and manage the collection of delinquent debt owed to the government.

Offer TreasuryDirect, allowing investors to buy Treasury securities online.

Provide administrative, financial management, and information technology (IT) services to a wide range of federal government clients through our shared services provider, the Administrative Resource Center (ARC).

Our Mission

The mission of the Bureau of the Fiscal Service is to promote the financial integrity and operational efficiency of the federal government through exceptional accounting, financing, collections, payments and shared services.

Our Vision

We will transform the way the government manages its finances and delivers shared services. Our goal is more efficiency, better transparency, and dependable accountability.

  • We have a deep commitment to serving the interests of the American people and our federal clients.
  • We're driven by a passion for improving financial management, and the delivery of administrative services, through efficient and effective operations.
  • We never lose focus on our critical program responsibilities - essential to the operation of the federal government - while using our proven abilities and strengths to make government better.

As a combined agency, the Fiscal Service is a sought-after resource.

  • We’re a valued partner, providing exceptional service in the collection, management and security of data.
  • We’re a strong collaborator, working with clients to strengthen their financial management processes and raise their level of performance, while allowing them to concentrate on their missions.
  • We lead and support, we don't simply process and account.
  • When we exercise our authority, we do so in a partnership with our clients.
  • We make financial information understandable and accessible to the public and federal agencies to promote transparency, better decision-making, and more efficient operations.

Our History

Right before World War II, in 1939, President Franklin Roosevelt began a reorganization of the Executive Department. The President consolidated all Treasury financing activities into a Fiscal Service under the direction of a Fiscal Assistant Secretary.

Those activities were: Office of the Commissioner of Accounts and Deposits, Division of Bookkeeping and Warrants, Division of Disbursement, Division of Deposits, Section of Surety Bonds, Office of the Commissioner of the Public Debt, the Division of Loans and Currency, the Office of the Register of the Treasury, Division of Public Debt Accounts and Audit, Division of Savings Bonds, Division of Paper Custody, and the Office of the Treasurer.

Two new bureaus were created from some of these organizations:

The Bureau of the Public Debt consisting of:

  • Office of the Commissioner of the Public Debt
  • Division of Loans and Currency
  • Register of the Treasury
  • Division of Public Debt Accounts
  • Division of Savings Bonds
  • Division of Paper Custody

The Bureau of Accounts consisting of:

  • Office of the Commissioner of Accounts and Deposits
  • Division of Bookkeeping and Warrants
  • Division of Disbursement
  • Division of Deposits
  • Section of Surety Bonds

By 1940, the Fiscal Service consisted of the Bureau of Accounts, the Bureau of the Public Debt, and the Office of the Treasurer—all under the direction of a Fiscal Assistant Secretary.

A 1974 reorganization of the Fiscal Service created the Bureau of Government Financial Operations, which consolidated most of the functions of the Office of the Treasurer.

In 1984, the Bureau of Government Financial Operations was renamed the Financial Management Service (FMS). The new name reflected Treasury’s aim to achieve greater efficiency and economy in government financial management.

During this time, the original Bureau of the Public Debt (BPD) continued to track, account for, and manage the various elements of the public debt structure first established by George Washington’s Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton.

On October 7, 2012, Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy Geithner issued Treasury Order 136-01 creating the Bureau of the Fiscal Service, consolidating the operations of the Bureau of the Public Debt and the Financial Management Service.
