Miscellaneous Receipts


Pursuant to §98 of the State Finance Law, the State Comptroller shall invest and keep invested all moneys belonging to any and all funds of the State.

The Short Term Investment Pool (STIP) represents a mechanism that allows for separate accounting for individual fund receipts and disbursements AND the pooling of cash assets of the funds within the State’s General Checking Account (GCA) for the purposes of short-term investments. This permits investment decisions to be made based on the assets and liquidity needs of the checking account as a whole, rather than the needs of its component parts. In this way STIP can be compared with a money market fund, with the individual funds investing moneys not needed for day-to-day activities or to make payments in the money market fund.


Although state funds are pooled in the STIP, separate accounting records are maintained to provide complete and accurate accountability for individual fund assets.
