IMF Technical Notes and Manuals (TNMs) are produced by IMF departments to expand the dissemination of their technical assistance advice and provide guidance for the collection of consistent and compliant statistics. TNMs present general advice and guidance, drawn in part from unpublished technical assistance reports, to a broader audience.
This technical note and manual addresses the following main issues: 1. Discusses the problems of fragmented government banking arrangements and how a treasury single account (TSA) could address them. 2. Explains the concept of a TSA and describes its features. 3. Discusses the design issues that need to be considered in setting up a TSA system. 4. Discusses the preconditions and key sequencing and implementation issues that need to be addressed in establishing a TSA.
