If finance, accounting, or information technology interests you, the State Treasurer's Office is the place for you!

Elected to office every four years, the State Treasurer has wide ranging responsibilities for management of the state's financial resources. As the chief financial officer, the State Treasurer keeps the books and manages money from the time it is collected in taxes until it is spent on programs funded by the Legislature.

The Office of the State Treasurer does this by providing banking, cash management, debt issuance, accounting, and investment services for state government and plays a major role in providing financial services to local governments.

The Investments Division invests the state's cash reserves on behalf of state agencies so that the citizens of the state get the best returns possible while keeping their money safe and secure.

Debt Management serves the citizens of the state by providing financing recommendations and operational services to the State Finance Committee, which is responsible for the authorization and issuance of all state debt. Debt management works with bond holders (institutional and retail investors), state agencies and local governments.

The Operations Division provides support for the Office of the State Treasurer in a variety of ways, including: Public Deposit Protection Commission; Cash Management; Warrant Processing; Financial Systems Interfaces; Accounting; and Information Services.
