Penn State’s Treasury Office facilitates the cash management and banking functions of the University by following proper treasury principles in order to protect University assets and manage the University’s operating liquidity to ensure financial obligations are met. The Treasury Office is responsible for the accounting of the University’s investments and the financial aspects of charitable gifts. In addition, we have oversight of the University's capital funding and budgeting to support the University's capital plan. We also administer the University's debt portfolio, including managing debt issuances, and provide oversight for the University's Merchant Management activity. Our goal is to employ best practices for all treasury functions, continually improving the treasury processes to meet the needs of our constituents.
