The United States Trustee Program's mission is to promote integrity and efficiency in the nation's bankruptcy system by enforcing bankruptcy laws, providing oversight of private trustees, and maintaining operational excellence. The President signed into law, the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA) of 2005 (P.L. 109-8) in April 2005. The BAPCPA, which took effect October 17, 2005, provides important statutory tools to assist the USTP in identifying and civilly prosecuting misconduct by debtors and others who misuse the bankruptcy system.
