The basic fee for the transfer of a Treasury book-entry security will increase from $.26 to $.28. The Federal Reserve funds movement fee will remain at $.05, resulting in a combined fee of $.33 for each Treasury securities transfer. In addition to the basic fee, off-line transfers have a surcharge. The surcharge for an off-line Treasury book-entry transfer will remain $33.00. EFFECTIVE DATE: January 2, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: James Sharer, Government Securities Specialist, Bureau of the Public Debt, 799 9th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20239, telephone (202) 504–3658; Kristina Yeh, Financial Systems Analyst, Bureau of the Public Debt, 799 9th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20239, telephone (202) 504–3679; Ed Errigo, Financing Specialist, Bureau of the Public Debt, 799 9th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20239, telephone (202) 504–3611; Terri Roddy, Financial Systems Analyst, Bureau of the Public Debt, 200 3rd Street, Room 527, Parkersburg, WV 26106, telephone (304) 480–6035. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of the Treasury has established a fee structure for the transfer of Treasury book-entry securities maintained on NBES. Treasury reassesses this fee structure periodically, based on our review of the latest book-entry costs and volumes. For each Treasury securities transfer or reversal sent or received on or after January 2, 2008, the basic fee will increase to $.28 from $.26. The surcharge for an off-line Treasury bookentry transfer will remain $33.00. 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 fees for bookentry 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 on {add date and docket number}. The following is the Treasury fee schedule that will take effect on January 2, 2008, for the book-entry transfers on NBES: TREASURY–NBES FEE SCHEDULE 1—EFFECTIVE JANUARY 2, 2008 [In dollars] Transfer type On-line On-line On-line On-line Off-line Off-line Off-line Off-line Off-line Basic fee transfer originated ............................................................................... transfer received ................................................................................. reversal transfer originated ................................................................. reversal transfer received ................................................................... transfer originated ............................................................................... transfer received ................................................................................. account switch received ...................................................................... reversal transfer originated ................................................................. reversal transfer received ...................................................................
