WASHINGTON – The U.S. Treasury Department today announced that it is extending the public comment period for the Request for Information (RFI) on the Evolution of the U.S. Treasury Market Structure.  The RFI was published in the Federal Register on January 22, 2016.  The comment period was set to expire on March 22. Treasury is extending the comment period until April 22, 2016 to provide additional opportunity to comment.
 
The RFI asks stakeholders for their views on structural changes in the U.S. Treasury market and the implications of such changes for market functioning; trading and risk management policies and practices across the U.S. Treasury market. The RFI also seeks views on the most effective means of providing additional information about Treasury market activity to the official sector on a regular and ongoing basis.  This RFI is intended to inform the ongoing work related to the next steps in the Joint Staff Report: The U.S. Treasury Market on October 15, 2014 and further the comprehensive review of the Treasury market since the 1998 Joint Study of the Regulatory System for Government Securities.
