Financial Institutions & Investors

The Ohio Treasurer's office works closely with financial institutions to certify depositories of public funds, collateralize public deposits for local governments, invest funds on behalf of the State of Ohio and certain local governments, and facilitate economic development efforts.

    Process for Serving as a Depository of Public Funds with the State of Ohio

    As Chairman of the State Board of Deposit, Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague encourages financial institutions to become eligible to accept public moneys belonging to the State of Ohio during the current designation period as set by the State Board of Deposit (“Designation Period”).

    “Interim deposits” are time and savings accounts awarded by the Ohio Treasurer. Examples include large dollar negotiated deposits and certificates of deposit placed through BidOhio or one of the Ohio Treasurer’s Linked Deposit programs. To be eligible to receive interim deposits, financial institutions are required to submit the Application and Agreement for Deposit of Public Funds and Trustee Agreement(s). Once reviewed and verified for completeness, the financial institution will be recommended to the State Board of Deposit for approval.

    Application forms and instructions, as well as a checklist, are available on the Treasurer’s website at under “Financial Institutions & Investors” or by direct request. Applications for interim deposits will be accepted throughout the Designation Period. If you have questions about the Application and Agreement for Deposit of Public Funds, please contact Blake Bishop at 614.644.1292 or [email protected].

    For depositories that seek an award of active deposits (demand deposit accounts), the application period is now closed. The next Request for Proposal (RFP) for banking services will be issued in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2024. The RFP schedule will be posted on the Treasurer’s website under Board of Deposit. The State Board of Deposit will designate depositories and award deposits in March 2025 pursuant to Ohio Revised Code Section 135.12.

    Please note: The Ohio Pooled Collateral System (OPCS) is separate and unique. Applications for participation in OPCS are accepted on a continuous basis and are not subject to approval by the State Board of Deposit. Information about OPCS can be found at

    The Ohio Treasurer’s office welcomes your application and the opportunity to work with you during the Designation Period.
