Issuing Government-wide Financial Reports

The Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) has the critical responsibility of maintaining the federal government's set of accounts and serving as the repository of information about the financial position of the United States government.

The bureau closely monitors the government's monetary assets and liabilities at all times through its oversight of central accounting and reporting systems.

Fiscal Service oversight responsibilities include helping federal agencies use uniform accounting and reporting standards and systems and assuring the continuous exchange of financial information between federal agencies, the Executive Branch's Office of Management and Budget, and financial institutions.

The bureau also gathers and publishes government-wide financial information for use in establishing fiscal and debt management policies. The public and private sectors are able to monitor the government's financial status using this financial data.
