The State Treasurer, along with the Director of Administrative Services, shall make such disbursements upon vouchers signed by a person authorized by the retirement board.

(5) All banks and custodians which receive and hold securities and investments for the retirement system may hold and evidence such securities by book entry account rather than obtaining and retaining the original certificate, indenture, or governing instrument for such security.
