The managed asset portfolio of each US state treasury is worth billions of USD. The cash position is of similar size. On operational level, the state treasury office takes care of receipts and disbursements. It may redeem, countersign and distribute warrants (check issued for services delivered as part of public procurement) and checks as part of its prerogatives. Cash management is an integral part of its daily business as cash, checks and electronic payments are processed.
