The State Treasury consists of three sectors and their support activities. The Director General is in charge of the State Treasury. The Director General, heads of State Treasury divisions and a personnel representative form the management group.

Services for Citizens Division

The Services for Citizens Division is in charge of matters related to compensation and benefits for disabled war veterans, war veterans and their relatives as well as military accident matters. We also serve citizens in different types of compensation issues. In addition to this, we provide government agencies and institutes with statutory insurance services to cover accidents and damages as well as employer services related to insurance. The division also monitors the government’s right to inherit persons who have died without heirs, and manages issues regarding government exemptions from payment.

Financing Division

The Financing Division is in charge of central government debt servicing and cash management and administering loans, interest subsidies and parliamentary loan guarantees granted from government funds.

Government Finance Administration, Information and Working Life Management Division

The tasks of the Government Finance Administration, Information and Working Life Management Division include government group accounts and the steering and development of financial administration, payment transfers and requisitions. We also support central government organisations in the transformation of work, promote knowledge-based management and develop the collection of financial data for municipalities and counties.

Support activities

Administrative Affairs and Development Division

The Administrative Affairs and Development Division manages the responsibilities of the State Treasury as an accounting unit, such as financial and personnel administration at the agency level, employer responsibilities involving the State Treasury as a whole, risk management and communications at the corporate level.

Information Resources Management Division

The Information Resources Management Division manages the shared ICT services in the State Treasury as well as the ICT services regarding substance-related matters in the divisions of Financial and Personnel Administration and Citizen Services.

Internal auditing

Internal auditing is an objective function independent of the rest of the organisation, which supports the management of the State Treasury and its divisions in attaining their goals. Through inspection and consulting services, the function helps to develop the efficiency, expediency and sufficiency of the risk management, internal monitoring and operations of the State Treasury.
