Debt Office Commentary: More efficient management of Swedish government agencies' international payments

Publication 28 June 2021 Debt Office Commentary

In recent years, the Debt Office has been able to reduce Swedish government agencies’ overall costs for currency conversions through better prices in the central government framework agreements for cross-border payments and the introduction of a multi-currency cash pool model for improved coordination of the agencies’ payments in foreign currencies.

A liquidity management structure as equally well-functioning and efficient as that used for Swedish kronor is now in place for agencies’ payments in other currencies using a multi-currency cash pool solution (MCCP).

Debt Office Commentary: The central government’s net borrowing requirement is a measure of its cash flow

Publication 9 June 2020 Debt Office Commentary

The central government net borrowing requirement shows how much money the central government needs to borrow to cover its ongoing operations. The Debt Office makes independent forecasts of the net borrowing requirement, which have an important role in the development of borrowing plans. Accurate forecasts enable the Debt Office to plan and manage borrowing in a way that helps minimise the long-term cost of central government debt.

Sofia Nilsson and Elin Stenbacka are economists at the Swedish National Debt Office’s Economic Analysis Department.
