As a public service institution with a legal personality, classified under category A, the “Belgian Debt Agency” is in charge with the operational management of the debt of the Federal State of the Kingdom of Belgium.
The Belgian Debt Agency consists of three divisions:
D2 is also in charge of the legal aspects and the documentation concerning debt issues and all contracts binding on the Belgian Debt Agency. Furthermore, D2 provides legal advice to the Executive Committee of the Belgian Debt Agency.
The three divisions of the Debt Agency have two joint services: the Internal Audit and the Secretariat.
The Debt Agency’s staff is composed of statutory officials from the Administration of the Treasury and employees recruited in the private sector for their technical skills in matters related to financial operations, credit analysis and data processing. The staff of the Agency amounts to about forty members.
The Debt Agency is managed jointly by its Directors who together form the Executive Committee. The meetings of this committee, currently chaired by the Director of the Middle Office (D2), are attended by the Agency’s deputy directors if they are directly concerned by an item set on the agenda (financial, legal, marketing, IT, etc). The auditor of the Agency attends the meetings of this committee as an observer.
The Debt Agency itself is supervised by the Strategic Committee: the Administrator General of the Treasury (chairman), the representative of the Minister of Finance, and the Directors of the Agency. The auditor of the Agency also attends the meetings of the Strategic Committee.
