All entities within State Government are required to deposit their daily receipts into accounts in the name of the Department of State Treasurer (DST) based upon General Statutes 147-77 and 147-78.
While DST does not mandate where any agency chooses to deposit its funds, the Banking Operations group does facilitate the account opening and management of the account with the bank. These relationships consist of both large commercial banks as well as smaller regional and community banks.
As of December 2016, the Banking Operations team has relationships with over 30 banks across the State with balances of over $200 million. We are proud to serve our agencies as well as our bank partners across North Carolina!
When an agency wishes to choose a depository for their daily receipts, Banking Operations partners with the agency to open the account and provide account assistance.
For additional assistance, please review the resources below, or contact our Specialized Banking Unit at 919-814-3900.
