Part I: Foreword

The mission of the Department of the Treasury includes formulating and recommending financial, tax, and fiscal policies, serving as financial agent for the U.S. Government, enforcing various Federal laws, and manufacturing coins and currency. Accomplishing this mission requires the procurement of a wide variety of commercial goods and services at an annual expenditure of appropriated and non-appropriated funds in excess of $3 billion.

Procurement authority has been delegated to the various bureaus of the Department, each conducting the procurement transactions necessary to carry out its respective program. Treasury's procurement efforts include a commitment to increase its contract awards to small, minority, women, HUBZone, service disabled veteran, and veteran owned business firms.

The diversity and wide distribution of Treasury programs can make it difficult for business representatives to determine how to best market products and services. To meet this challenge, the information contained in this guide includes contact points, procurement procedures, and general information about the responsibilities of each bureau.

We invite and encourage your participation in Treasury procurement program. Thank you for your interest in doing business with the Department of the Treasury.
