Developing Written Procedures- Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and Internal Control Templates


Pursuant to NRS 353A.020, agencies are required to develop written procedures to carry out the uniform system of internal accounting and administrative controls adopted by the Department of Administration. The uniform system of controls is documented in the Self-Assessment Questionnaire [SAQ].

    Financial Management has developed the templates below to assist agencies with developing written procedures. These templates serve as a framework or outline to be used when writing procedures and are designed to work in conjunction with the Self-Assessment Questionnaire [SAQ].
