Understanding the investment needs of Illinois public funds, the creators of IMET established a platform for competitive fund concepts to meet Illinois governments unique investing needs. IMET seeks to provide attractive options for investment of core cash, liquid funds, bond proceeds, capital funds and one-to-three year dollars. In addition, IMET seeks to provide tools and resources to help Illinois public entities with investing.


To assist IMET participants to implement GASB 8, IMET is partnering with DebtBook to offer DebtBook’s powerful software solution at attractive pricing (for IMET participants).

GASB 87 is changing the reporting requirements of organizations just like yours that have leases for assets (including real estate, vehicles and equipment). DebtBook software will help you:

  • Review, identify, inventory all your leases
  • Be aware of other contractual arrangements that contain lease provisions
  • Make necessary changes to comply with the Standard
  • Document the required disclosures
  • Be ready for your next audit
