Minutes of the Meeting of the Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association January 31, 2012 -continued

February 1, 2012--The Committee convened in closed session at the Hay Adams Hotel at 11:30 a.m. All Committee members were present. Assistant Secretary for Financial Markets Mary Miller, Deputy Assistant Secretary (DAS) for Federal Finance Matthew Rutherford and Director of the Office of Debt Management Colin Kim welcomed the Committee.
Other members of Treasury staff present were Fred Pietrangeli, Jennifer Imler, Amar Reganti, David Chung, Ernest Zhu, Brian Zakutansky, and Alfred Johnson. Federal Reserve Bank of New York members Dina Marchioni and Mark Cabana were also present.

DAS Rutherford began with a review of the fiscal situation noting that the economy posted a 2.8 percent growth rate in the fourth quarter of 2011. Rutherford presented a series of charts showing recent trends in receipts, outlays, and deficits. DAS Rutherford noted that the Administration’s new budget numbers are expected to be released in early February 2012.

Director Kim proceeded to discuss Treasury’s marketable debt portfolio. Using OMB deficit projections from the September 2011 report, “Living Within Our Means and Investing in the Future” and assuming no changes to the current issuance strategy, Treasury looks to be under financed in FY2012. With the same assumptions, Treasury would be over financed from FY2013 to FY2016. Any financing shortfalls in FY2012 are expected to be made up with increased bill issuance.
