The treasurer is the state's cash management officer and head of the Department of Treasury, which accounts for and manages the Colorado government's money. The treasury receives all revenues in the form of taxes, fees and other payments, disburses money based on warrants (checks), and manages the state's investment funds. As in many states, the treasurer also manages the state's unclaimed property fund.
