Effective from 21st June 2021, the issuance and management of government securities is taken over by the Ministry of Finance- Debt Management office. The Debt Management Office establishes and reviews procedures and systems to ensure that the issuance of government securities is undertaken efficiently and effectively and according to the Borrowing plan for the Fiscal year.
The Debt Management Office is also the registrar for all government securities issued and operates CSDRMS for this purpose. The terms and conditions for the issuance of these securities and the rules governing the operation of the BES are provided in the Government Securities Operations Manual.

Treasury Bill Net Issuance (TBNI) refers to the total of Treasury bill issuances less the total of Treasury bill redemptions for the period. This represents the amount of debt accumulated or debt repaid during the period. When the issuances are greater than the redemptions, the debt is accumulated and if the issuances are less than the redemptions, it’s a debt repayment.
