The Office of State Finance helps create, communicate and carry out the governor’s fiscal policies.
The director, Preston Doerflinger, was appointed by Gov. Mary Fallin in 2011.
The OSF also oversees the state’s financial transactions, including payroll, vendor payments and dispersal of federal aid, and is the public and media’s primary source of information about the financial state of Oklahoma.
Key departments within the OSF include the Division of Central Accounting and Reporting, headed by state comptroller Brenda Bolander; the Gaming Compliance Unit, which oversees tribal gaming; and the CORE Group, which collects and analyzes financial data for various state agencies.
