New Tender System for the Issue of Commonwealth Government Securities
It is planned to implement a new electronic system for the collection and processing of tender bids for the issue of Commonwealth Government Securities (CGS). The new AOFM Tender System will be accessible via the Yieldbroker DEBTS System.
- The new tender system will replace the current AOFM Tender System which is accessed via the BLOOMBERG PROFESSIONAL® Service.
The first tender conducted using the new tender system is expected to be a tender for the issue of Treasury Bonds on 4 March 2009. This tender is expected to be officially confirmed at noon on 3 March 2009.
Over the coming week the AOFM and Yieldbroker will be in contact with the parties that participate in CGS tenders about the planned implementation of the new tender system.
In conjunction with implementation of the new tender system revised AOFM Tender System Conditions of Operation will become effective from 2 March 2009.
Revised Information Memoranda for Treasury Bonds and Treasury Notes will be issued shortly.
