Term Investment Option
The Term Investment Option (TIO) is an investment opportunity offered to Treasury Tax and Loan (TT&L) participants. Treasury will frequently auction excess operating funds to participants for a fixed term and rate determined through a competitive bidding process.
The Treasury strives to give participants as much advance notice of an auction as possible. Treasury generally follows the following timeline:
Day One: Update Notification - E-mail with general
intent notice sent to participants one day prior to official
Treasury may vary the auction process by expanding or compressing these time frames in order to more effectively manage the government's cash balances. This may include (1) eliminating the update, (2) updating and announcing the auction on the same day or (3) announcing the auction one day prior to the auction. Treasury may also vary the auction close time.
