Fiscal Service May 23, 2005 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Sale and Issue of Marketable Book-Entry Treasury Bills, Notes, and Bonds-Bidder Definitions
Document Number: 05-10218
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-05-23
Agency: Fiscal Service, Public Debt Bureau, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The Department of the Treasury (``Treasury,'' ``We,'' or ``Us'') is issuing in final form an amendment to 31 CFR part 356 (Uniform Offering Circular for the Sale and Issue of Marketable Book- Entry Treasury Bills, Notes, and Bonds) by modifying its definitions of different types of bidders in Treasury marketable securities auctions. This final amendment allows a certain business relationship between two entities that currently would be treated as a single bidder under the auction rules to be treated as separate bidders. Specifically, the amendment states that an entity that is more than 50-percent-owned by a corporation or partnership is not deemed to be an affiliate of the corporation or partnership if the ownership is for investment purposes only and certain other conditions are met. The amendment updates the auction rules to acknowledge a business practice that currently is not accommodated in the rules.
