About the agency

The mission of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) is "to develop and produce United States currency notes. As its primary function, the BEP prints billions of dollars - referred to as Federal Reserve Notes - each year for delivery to the Federal Reserve System." The BEP began in 1862. During its early years, it was known as the National Currency Bureau.
