Treasury's Borrowings Program
Office of Public Debt Accounting - Bureau of the Public Debt


Welcome to the homepage of the Treasury's Borrowings Program, maintained by the Bureau of the Public Debt. The Borrowings Program represents the Department of the Treasury's role in the federal loan program. The Federal Government makes direct loans to and guarantees loans for inadequately served areas of the population in order to promote the nation's general welfare. Federal agencies that operate these credit programs, and have authority granted through legislation, borrow the funds from the Department of the Treasury. They in turn lend to, or guarantee loans for, nonfederal borrowers such as small businesses, students, veterans, and farmers.

Treasury's Agency Borrowing System (TABS) is the automated accounting system for the Treasury's Borrowings Program.
