— Official News Release —
North Dakota State Treasurer Kelly Schmidt has launched a new website that is bringing greater transparency to the state’s operating fund and other government fund balances.
The website, located at nd.gov/treasurer, displays the current operating fund balance on the home page. Additional operating fund information displays daily deposits, withdrawals and balances dating back six years.
“I have always believed the people’s treasury is the people’s business,” says Schmidt. “This new website raises the level of awareness of state funds and their balances.”
The website provides the balances in the state’s government funds and offers a search function for revenue distributions to counties, tribes, cities, school districts and townships. “This information is now readily available to anyone who wants to find current fund values and the distributions made to the state’s political subdivisions,” says Schmidt.
The North Dakota Office of State Treasurer receives, reconciles and disburses all state money and special government funds. It provides a “checks and balances” system for all state agencies on a daily basis, offering updated cash flow entries and sound financial practices.
