Although there is no law that requires the RBNZ to compile and publish data on the tenders, the data are disseminated by the RBNZ as a service to the public.
Due to the RBNZ's introduction of the Official Cash Rate scheme on 17 March 1999, the above table has been redesigned.
Previously the table was called "Influences on Primary Liquidity" and contained the influences on Settlement Cash and Discountable Securities. With the abolition of Discountable Securities the table has been renamed "Influences on Settlement Cash" and contains expanded detail on both the Government's and RBNZ's transactions with the banking system. The table also contains a list of the outstanding securities, as at the end of the month, that result from the Bank's liquidity management operations.
The actual receipts and expenditure for the Government and RBNZ.
Settlement cash balances The surplus cash held at the Bank in Exchange Settlement Account System (ESAS) accounts at the end of a banking day.
