About the Federal Investments Program
The Federal Investments Program
Important Security Changes Affecting All FedInvest Users Beginning October 16, 2023.
The Federal Investments Program is administered by the Bureau of the Fiscal Service’s (Fiscal Service) Federal Investments and Borrowings Branch (FIBB).
Federal agencies that have the proper legal authority granted by Congress can invest funds in Government Account Series (GAS) securities with the Department of the Treasury (Treasury). Treasury will review and document all new investment authority prior to initial investment activity.
The purpose of the Federal Investments Program is to facilitate these investments on behalf of Treasury. The Federal Investments Program represents almost a quarter of the public debt outstanding, providing services to approximately 240 trust, deposit, and special Funds.

- Maintains detailed records of GAS investment transactions between Treasury and other federal agencies.
- Accounts for and reports Treasury's Federal Investments Program-related debt and the associated accruals and payments.
- Develops and maintains accounting policies and standards for the management of the Federal Investments Program.
