About this Organization

The Department of Finance is an executive agency headed by a cabinet secretary appointed by the governor. The secretary is the state's chief financial officer and is responsible along with the rest of the department for promoting Delaware's fiscal health by generating, collecting, and accounting for funds used to fund all services provided by the state government. The DOF is the source of economic and fiscal policy and is responsible for managing the state's fiscal resources. The department, particularly the Division of Revenue, also administers several resources used to promote state-wide economic development efforts.
