Incoming deposits and disbursements are monitored and calculated to determine how much money to invest on a daily basis.
Warrant and Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Processing
State warrants are processed, agency EFT expenditures are approved, and wire transfers are initiated.
Approximately 600 bank accounts in various banks throughout the state are maintained. All money received by state agencies is deposited into these accounts. Balances in state bank accounts are withdrawn and invested on a daily basis.
Debt Service Payments
After bonds are sold, the debt service principal and interest payment schedule for each bond issue is recorded. Debt service payments are paid to the state’s paying agent who ensures that the bond holders get paid.
Daily information from investment transactions provided by the State Board of Investment (SBI) is verified to ensure that the state received the correct amount of principal and interest. Collateral pledged to state funds is also monitored to protect the state against loss.
