ADDRESSES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY I. Background [Docket No. TREAS–DO–2020–0007] Treasury continually seeks to finance the government at the lowest cost over time, manage its liability profile, foster healthy secondary markets, and expand the investor base for Treasury securities. Treasury is examining potential new products in pursuit of these goals. Following substantial analysis and consideration of input from market participants, in 2014 Treasury began issuing FRNs indexed to the 13-week Treasury bill rate (13-week T-bill FRNs). Since their launch, Treasury has issued more than $1.1 trillion of 13-week T-bill FRNs. A Treasury analysis released in 2017 showed that issuing 13-week T-bill FRNs had reduced realized interest costs by $1.3 billion (when compared to 2-year fixed-rate notes).1 Development and Potential Issuance of Treasury Floating Rate Notes Indexed to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate Department of the Treasury. Notice and request for information. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of the Treasury (Treasury) is requesting comments on the possibility of issuing a floating rate note (FRN) indexed to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) published by the SOFR Administrator, currently the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY). Treasury has not made a decision whether to issue FRNs indexed to SOFR (SOFR-indexed FRNs). Treasury will continue to weigh the merits of SOFRindexed FRNs, and comments received as part of this request for information SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00148 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1 See 4th Quarter 2017 Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee Discussion Charts, available at https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/datachart-center/quarterly-refunding/Documents/ Q42017CombinedChargesforArchives.pdf.
