BANKS AND BANKING
SUPERVISION BY DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE
26-1109. Books and accounts. Whenever it appears to the department of finance that any bank does not keep books and accounts in such manner as to enable it to readily ascertain the true condition of such bank, or that such books and accounts are not kept in a manner which will minimize, as far as possible, loss through dishonesty of its officers or employees or otherwise, the department shall have power to require the officers of such bank or any of them, to open and keep such books or accounts as the department may, in its discretion, determine and prescribe for the purpose of keeping accurate and convenient records of the transactions and accounts of such bank.
The directors of any bank shall, within ten (10) days from receipt by the bank of a written statement from the department that the bank’s internal auditing procedures are inadequate or deficient in any respect in the opinion of the department, retain, at the bank’s sole expense, an independent licensed certified public accountant, approved by the director, to forthwith make an audit of the bank, and upon completion thereof a certified copy of the audit shall be delivered to the department.
