SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION. On October 1, 1985, the Department of the 
Treasury established a fee structure for the transfer of Treasury book-
entry securities maintained on NBES.
    Based on the latest review of book-entry costs and volumes Treasury 
will increase its basic fee from the levels currently in effect. 
Effective January 3, 2006, the basic fee will increase from $.21 to 
$.22 for each Treasury securities transfer and reversal sent and 
received, changed from fees in effect since CY 2005. The surcharge for 
an off-line Treasury book-entry transfer in CY 2006 will be $33.00, 
unchanged from CY 2005.
    The basic transfer fee assessed to both sends and receives is 
reflective of costs associated with the processing of a security 
transfer. The off-line surcharge reflects the additional processing 
costs associated with the manual processing of off-line securities 
transfers.
    The Treasury does not charge a fee for account maintenance, the 
stripping and reconstitution of Treasury securities, the wires 
associated with original issues, or interest and redemption payments. 
The Treasury currently absorbs these costs and will continue to do so.
    The fees described in this notice apply only to the transfer of 
Treasury book-entry securities held on NBES. Information concerning 
book-entry transfers of government Agency securities, which are priced 
by the Federal Reserve System, is set out in a separate Federal 
Register notice published by the Board of Governors of the Federal 
Reserve System elsewhere in this issue (Docket No. DP-1241).

January 3, 2006, for the book-entry transfers on NBES:
