 Treasury Announces Marketable Borrowing Estimates

View the Sources and Uses table here. ​

Washington -- The U.S. Department of the Treasury today announced its current estimates of net marketable borrowing for the October – December 2013 and January – March 2014 quarters:

  • During the October – December 2013 quarter, Treasury expects to issue $266 billion in net marketable debt, assuming an end-of-December cash balance of $140 billion.  This borrowing estimate is $32 billion higher than announced in July 2013.  The increase in borrowing relates primarily to an increase to the end-of-December cash balance assumption [1], offset by lower outlays and higher net issuance of state and local government securities (SLGS) due to the reopening of the SLGS subscription window.
  • During the January – March 2014 quarter, Treasury expects to issue $265 billion in net marketable debt, assuming an end-of-March cash balance of $45 billion.


During the July – September 2013 quarter, Treasury issued $197 billion in net marketable debt and ended the quarter with a cash balance of $88 billion.  In July 2013, Treasury had estimated $209 billion in net marketable debt and assumed an end-of-September cash balance of $95 billion.  The decrease in borrowing was driven by the lower ending cash balance and lower outlays.

Additional financing details relating to Treasury’s Quarterly Refunding will be released at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, November 6, 2013.
