Treasury is the bank for all State of Oregon agencies. Deposits are made to an agency’s account at Treasury and checks/warrants are drawn on Treasury.  Treasury works with agencies and the Department of Administrative Services to establish one of three primary account types:

  • Agency Account (formerly called a Receipted Account), an account established with the State Controller's Division, Department of Administrative Services. These accounts may have warrant-writing authority. Agency accounts require statutory authority to be opened, and all budgetary and cash controls for these accounts exist with the State Controller's Division.

  • Treasury Account (formerly called a Suspense Account), an account established with Treasury. These accounts may have check writing authority, if approved by both Treasury and the Department of Administrative Services. Treasury accounts require statutory authority to be opened, and are outside the purview of the Budget and Management Division of the Department of Administrative Services.

  • General Fund Account, an account established with the State Controller's Division that exists within the General Fund. These accounts may have warrant-writing authority. General Fund Accounts require statutory authority to be opened, and all budgetary and cash controls for these accounts exist with the State Controller's Division.

Instructions for requesting establishment or closure of an account can be found in the Cash Management Manual and related forms are available here. If you have questions please contact Treasury at (503) 378-4633 or contact a member of the Banking Section.
