The Open Market Trading Desk (the Desk) at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York undertakes small value open market transactions for the purpose of testing operational readiness to implement existing and potential policy directives from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). The FOMC directs the Desk to conduct these exercises to test its operational readiness in the Authorizations and Continuing Directives for Open Market Operations.
In connection with these authorizations, the Desk intends to conduct a small value overnight repo operation with Primary Dealers and Standing Repo Facility counterparties to test its contingency operation infrastructure. The bid submission process will be conducted from 10:30 AM ET to 10:45 AM ET on Tuesday, May 23, 2023. Operation results will be posted on the New York Fed’s website following the completion of bid evaluation. All counterparties will be limited to one $1 million proposition per tranche during the operation. The operation details are as follows:
