For questions regarding the PSAF: SUMMARY: A. Overview—Each year, as required by the Monetary Control Act of 1980, the Reserve Banks set fees for priced services provided to depository institutions. These fees are set to recover, over the long run, all direct and indirect costs and imputed costs, including financing costs, taxes, and certain other expenses, as well as the return on equity (profit) that will have been earned if a private business firm provided the services. The imputed costs and imputed profit are collectively referred to as the private-sector adjustment factor (PSAF). From 2007 through 2016, the Reserve Banks recovered 101.8 percent of their total expenses (including imputed costs) and targeted after-tax profits or return on equity (ROE) for providing priced services.1 Table 1 summarizes 2016 actual, 2017 estimated, and 2018 budgeted costrecovery rates for all priced services. Cost recovery is estimated to be 102.6 percent in 2017 and budgeted to be 100.0 percent in 2018.
