Fed Discontinues Development of FedLine® for Windows NT®

Monday, July 1, 2002

Recently, the Federal Reserve System made the strategic decision to deliver all future financial services via web-based technologies. For this reason, the Fed has discontinued its development of FedLine® for the Windows NT® operating system.

The Fed shares the popular view that the future of the financial services industry relies on using state-of-the-art, web-based technologies. Ultimately, this direction will:

  • allow customers to have flexible access to payment transactions and information-system services;
  • enable us to adapt our products to quickly meet our customers' business needs; and
  • fulfill our customers' expectations for providing a secure mechanism whenever they conduct Fed business transactions.

Web-based payments products and services will be developed and introduced on a continuing basis. Currently, several applications are available through FedLine for the Web, including:

  • Account Management Information;
  • Cash Services,
  • select Check Services—such as check adjustments and check advice delivery—and
  • Service Charge Information.

In addition, Reporting and Reserves are available at

As the Fed makes the transition to providing a full suite of web-based information and transaction services, all of the financial services the Fed currently offers will continue to be available through our existing DOS FedLine product.
