State-Issued Checks

Agencies enter check requests on the accounting system. Those check requests are authorized by the State Treasurer, the Governor and the State Controller and then printed by the accounting system. While Treasury distributes checks, checks are initiated and tracked by each agency. For example, the Department of Health and Human Services initiates and tracks all child support checks.
