(1) Net marketable borrowings held by the private sector exclude refinancings (“auction additions”) of Treasury securities held in the Federal Reserve System’s Open Market Account (SOMA), but include financing required due to repurchases of the SOMA. SOMA’s purchases of Treasury securities in the secondary market do not directly change the net marketable borrowing held by the private sector but, all else being equal, when the securities mature and assuming that the Federal Reserve does not repurchase no securities maturing, they would increase the amount of liquidity raised by a given amount. size of private auctions by increasing the amount of the SOMA “add-on”. Additionally, buybacks are not expected to significantly affect net marketable debt held by the private sector, as new issues replace repurchased securities.

Cash Balance Assumptions

(3) $23 billion in SOMA Treasury holdings as of June 30, 2024 are scheduled to be repurchased on July 1, 2024. These repurchases are expected to be considered by the Federal Reserve as part of the June repurchase cap, but are not reflected in the $243 billion in expected borrowing is higher, as repayments will be settled in July.
