The Treasury Department is responsible for investing most of the state's cash and managing the related investments. Currently the Department manages more than $6.5 billion in more than 750 funds. For efficiency and in order to increase investment yield, most of the monies from General Fund, state agencies, and political subdivisions of the state are pooled for investment purposes. Some funds are managed separately under distinct investment policies.
The Treasury Cash Fund, and its sister fund, Treasury Pool, provide state agencies with the cash-flow liquidity they need to meet near-term financial obligations.
