Bankruptcy Administrator

The United States Bankruptcy Administrator Program (USBA) is an agency of the Judiciary, the third branch of the federal government. The USBA oversees the administration of bankruptcy cases and private trustees, and monitors the transactions and conduct of parties in bankruptcy. Separate and distinct from the federal bankruptcy courts, the USBA and its attorneys regularly appear before the United States Bankruptcy Courts on all aspects of bankruptcy matters for the purpose of assisting the Courts in insuring that bankruptcy cases are administered properly, and in conformance with applicable laws and procedures. Additionally, the USBA works in coordination with other government agencies, including the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Internal Revenue Service, to identify and investigate bankruptcy fraud and abuse.
