The Office of the State Comptroller and the Office of Policy and Management jointly issued "Accountability Directive Number 1 (Revised)" in December 1994.

Also included are six internal control checklists to be completed, retained by the agency and re-evaluated each fiscal year.
In March 1996, the Offices of the Comptroller and Auditors of Public Accounts developed a sole internal control questionnaire. This was mailed to all state agencies in March 1996, stating that the final version of the directive would be issued June 30, 1996.
The final version of the Accountability Directive 1 has been delayed until further notice. Agencies are to use the questionnaire issued by the Auditors of Public Accounts and the narrative contained in the exposure draft until the final Directive is issued.
