Bureau of the Fiscal Service

Have you ever had trouble getting your checkbook to balance?  If so, just imagine how difficult it must be to get the U.S. government's checkbook to balance.  The agency in charge of making and collecting payments, as well as tracking federal revenue and debt, is the Bureau of the Fiscal Service within the Department of the Treasury:

It was created in 2012 by combining the Bureau of the Public Debt and the Financial Management Service.  The Bureau of the Fiscal Service issues several publications, including the Financial Statement of the United States Government, the Monthly Treasury Statement, and the Treasury Bulletin.  With the quantity of money they're responsible for tracking, let's hope the Bureau's accountants are eating their Wheaties every morning.
