Records of the Federal Reserve System
(RG 82)

The Federal Reserve System was established as an independent agency by the Federal Reserve Act of December 23, 1913. It serves as the national central bank. Among its duties are executing Federal monetary policy; transferring funds; handling government deposits and debt issues; and supervising and regulating banks.

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Board determine general monetary, credit, and operating policies for the Federal Reserve System, and formulate rules and regulations necessary to carry out the purposes of the Federal Reserve Act.
