Treasury Professional Manager I

Investment Operations Manager

Recruitment #23-005651-0002


Section 6-222 through 6-225 of the State Finance and Procurement Article governs the investment of the State’s unexpended or surplus money.  The Investment Department in the State Treasurer’s Office is charged with the responsibility of investing these monies in accordance with established laws, policies and procedures, as well as establishing an Investment Policy which provides additional guidance and protocols for investment of state monies.

 The Investment Department primarily invests the cash balances that are temporarily idle between the time State revenue is collected and the time budgeted amounts are disbursed. The Department is also responsible for several longer-term investment activities associated with the purchase of 20-year development easements on agricultural land and the payment of lottery prizes. The Department manages the investment of General Obligation bond proceeds and directs the short-term and long-term investments of a number of trustee accounts under State agency revenue bond indentures. Interest earnings on investments under the stewardship of the State Treasurer accrue to the General Fund unless State law or regulation directs that the interest should accrue to a specific fund.  Under State law, investments by the State Treasurer’s Office are limited to secured bank accounts, full faith and credit obligations of the federal government, obligations of certain federal agencies or instrumentalities, repurchase agreements collateralized by those securities, certain money market mutual funds and limited amounts of highest rated commercial paper.

 The State wants to make proceeds from its investments, and the investment portfolio is ultimately designed to meet the cash flow needs of the State so that funds are available to cover disbursements and fund State programs for its citizens.  However, the highest priority of the Investment Department is the safe and prudent keeping of public funds. Subsequent priorities encompass liquidity of the portfolio to meet all operating requirements of the State and return of investment with due regard for minimizing risk while maximizing return in consideration of the cash flow characteristics of the portfolio.
