Treasury bill Tender Results
On 14 January 2000, the DMO took over responsibility from the Bank of England for the conduct of Treasury bill tenders, although the Bank retained responsibility for determining the size and maturity of tenders until 3 April 2000.
Treasury bills are routinely issued at weekly tenders, held by the DMO on the last business day of each week (i.e. usually on Fridays), for settlement on the following business day. Treasury bills can be issued with maturities of 1 month (approximately 28 days), 3 months (approximately 91 days), 6 months (approximately 182 days) or 12 months (up to 364 days), although to date no 12 month tenders have been held.
The DMO announces the size of each week's tender and the maturity of the bills on offer at the preceding week's tender. Following the final tender at the end of each quarter, the DMO issues a notice outlining the maturities of Treasury bills available in each week of the following quarter. For more details of the rules and regulations governing Treasury bill tenders see Exchequer Cash Management in the UK. In addition to routine weekly tenders the DMO can also conduct “ad hoc” Treasury bill tenders, as well as repo and reverse repo tenders.
