LOCATION OF POSITION

80 Calvert Street, Annapolis, MD 21401

Main Purpose of Job

The primary mission of the State Treasurers Office (STO) Banking Services Department is to manage and control banking relationships for all banking needs for all of State government.
As the liaison between the State and participating bank vendors, the departments goal is to promote State agency banking needs and respond timely to State agency requests for banking services.
Its principal function is the accurate and timely recordation of State funds and the cash reconciliation of the States bank accounts to the States general ledger.
The State Treasurers Office is the custodian for all of the States cash assets, which requires oversight for all State agency depository and disbursement accounts, lockbox services, merchant account services, agency working funds, trust and escrow accounts, etc.
The State cash reconciliation is maintained on complex databases that consolidate information from multiple data sources and bank portals.
The Banking Services Division is responsible for the States overall cash reconciliation on a daily basis, and we balance to the penny.


The Banking Services Department, along with the Investments Department, is part of the Treasury Management Division in the agency.
The department consists of 11 banking professionals and 3 banking managers, all under the leadership of the Director of Treasury Management.
While each State agency performs its own agency reconciliation and accounting work, the STO Banking Services department, in contrast, is responsible for pulling all state banking activity together and reconciling the Statewide master depository and disbursement bank accounts against the States main general ledger.
Each position in the STO Banking Services Department plays a specific and unique role that, when combined, determines the States daily cash balance.
In addition, Banking Services assists with agency-specific depository and disbursement bank account issues regarding opening accounts; vendor payment issues; payroll and income tax refund processing errors; lockbox services; merchant account services (credit and debit card receipts); agency working fund, trust and escrow accounts; stop payments, cancellations and check re-issuance; processing drawdown of funds from federal programs and grants; initiating FedWire payments; processing all State bank account adjustments; managing the States unpresented and undeliverable check funds; collateralization compliance; research; and other agency banking needs.


The Treasury Professional I classification is part of an agency-unique, non-competitive promotion series in which an employee may advance from the intermediate-level Treasury Professional I to a full performance, Treasury Professional II through work experience and competency.
The State Treasurers Office is continuously looking for professionals in the accounting and banking field to join our Treasury Management Department.
As future vacancies arise, the Human Resources Department may reach out to candidates on this eligible list to fill vacancies.
