Public Entity Instructions

V.1.1 - September 23, 2010


Under existing Texas law, a depository institution must pledge security to collateralize deposits of public funds by a public entity in excess of federal deposit limits. The current system requires that each public entity's deposits be collateralized individually, even if a depository institution holds deposits from several different public entities. The new Pooled Collateral Program provides an alternative to the current system by allowing a depository institution to pool collateral for public entities, and requires the Comptroller to regulate and monitor the Program. Under this Program, the Comptroller ensures that the securities pledged as collateral have a market value greater than the deposits.

The public entity is responsible for reviewing the daily report of its ledger balance for accuracy and reporting any discrepancies to the depository institutions. The daily report will be available each day by 9:00 a.m. CT.

The Comptroller will also provide a daily report on the market value of the collateral held in each pool on its Web site.
