The Office of Investment Security, in the International Affairs office of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, fulfills Treasury's statutory responsibilities as chair of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which has the authority to review the national security effects of foreign acquisitions of U.S. businesses. The office leads and coordinates the review by sixteen Executive Branch departments and White House offices of each transaction notified to CFIUS. If a transaction presents national security concerns, CFIUS has the authority to have the parties take certain steps to mitigate the national security risk, or if the risk cannot be mitigated, recommend to the President that he block the transaction. The office also plays a lead role in maintaining U.S. openness to foreign investment, which provides the policy context in which CFIUS operates, and engaging other countries to help ensure an open investment policy towards U.S. investors.
