Reserve Bank Operations and Payment Systems 

The Division of Reserve Bank Operations and Payment Systems oversees the policies and operations of the Federal Reserve Banks as providers of financial services to depository institutions and as providers of fiscal agency services to the U.S. Treasury and other government agencies. In addition, as part of the Board's enhanced program for the supervision and oversight of payment systems, central securities depositories, securities settlement systems, central counterparties, and trade information warehouses, the division participates directly in the supervision of financial market infrastructures that are designated as systemically important by the U.S. Financial Stability Oversight Council as well as in more general oversight activities relating to domestic and foreign financial market infrastructures. The division also develops policies and regulations to foster the integrity and efficiency of the U.S. payment and financial system; works closely with other regulators, central banks, and international organizations to improve the payment and financial system more broadly; and conducts research on various topics related to payment and clearing issues and financial market infrastructures.
