CHAPTER 5

ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF THE

UNDERSECRETARY 1. The Undersecretary

The Undersecretary has direct supervision of all activities of the fiscal offices of the government, as well as over the following: All matters pertaining to foreign loans under the various Liberty Bond Acts providing for loans of about ten billion dollars to the various countries engaged with the United States in the war with Germany; payments, advances, and loans to railroads under the Transportation Act of 1920.

The Undersecretary is authorized to act for and by direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, in any branch of the department, and represents the Secretary in dealings with the Federal Reserve Board, the War Finance Corporation, and the Farm Loan Board.

The Federal Farm Loan Bureau, under his supervision, will be discussed in a separate chapter. 2, Commissioner of Accounts and Deposits

The Office of Commissioner of Accounts and Deposits was created in January, 1920, on account of the large increase in the accounting transactions of the Treasury in connection with receipts and expenditures and the deposit of public funds throughout the country. The Commissioner, under the Fiscal Assistant Secretary, was given administrative supervision over the Division of Bookkeeping and Warrants and the Division of Public Moneys and their relations to the office of the Treasurer of the United States. He was later given supervisory direction over the Division of Deposits, which was created on May 19, 1920, as a part of this reorganization. The Commissioner likewise was given control of all accounts of investments of the government and was made responsible for the proper custody with the Treasurer of the United States and the Federal Reserve Banks of all investments and securities for which the Secretary is responsible other than those related to the public debt operations.

3. Division of Bookkeeping and Warrants

This Division, established in 1894,1 is by law the official bookkeeping organization of the government, so far as appropriation accounts and covering of public moneys into the Treasury are concerned. The accounts and records of disbursements in this Division are on the basis of warrants issued and necessarily differ materially from the actual .cash expenditures as shown in the daily treasury statement prepared in the office of the Treasurer of the United States. Reconciliations between these accounts, both as to receipts and expenditures, are made in order to exhibit properly the receipts and expenditures of the government. Among the many functions of this Division, the following are the most important:

1 Act July 31, 1894 (28 Stat. 208).

(a) Analyzes all acts of Congress carrying appropriations and opens up corresponding appropriation accounts on its ledgers;

(b) Issues all warrants for placing disbursing funds to the credit of disbursing officers and for the payments by the Treasury of claims settled by the General Accounting Office;

(c) Issues all warrants covering into the Treasury the revenues and receipt of the government from the various authorized sources, and all repayments to the Treasury of the unexpended balances of appropriations ;

(d) Handles the work involved in the Secretary's Special Deposit Accounts, including those of the Alien Property Custodian kept with the Treasurer of the United States;

(e) Compiles for submission through the Bureau of the Budget the regular estimates of appropriations and the supplementary and deficiency estimates for the service of the Treasury;

(f) Compiles for transmission to Congress an annual statement of the receipts, disbursements, and unexpended balances under each appropriation account;

(g) Makes miscellaneous statistical reports as requested by Congress or by the Secretary of the Treasury;

(h) Carries on the correspondence and miscellaneous work incident to its activities. 4. Division of Deposits

The Division of Deposits is charged with the administration of matters pertaining to designation of government depositaries and the deposit of government funds in the Federal Reserve Banks, national banks, special depositaries under the Liberty loan acts, foreign depositaries, Federal Land Banks, and the Philippine Treasury. It supervises all depositaries and obtains proper security for all government deposits. It issues directions to all public officers as to the deposit of public moneys collected by them and is charged generally with the administration of all matters pertaining to the foregoing. 5. Section of Statistics

This section makes investigations on questions of taxation, banking, general business conditions, tax-exempt securities, currency, the precious metals, and other general financial subjects as they arise. It also prepares correspondence and reports for the Secretary and the Undersecretary, dealing with the above and allied subjects. Under the direction of the Undersecretary it supervises the assembling of and assists in editing the annual report of the Secretary of the Treasury and drafts some of the articles in the report. During the sessions of Congress a digest of bills of interest to the Treasury is prepared and distributed to the various divisions and bureaus, so that each office may keep in touch with the progress of any legislation in which it may be especially interested.

The section is under the supervision of the Undersecretary.
