      1.

      2. (B)

        1. (i) The Chief Fiscal Officer of the State may revoke any such approval by transmitting a thirty-day notice to the executive head of the institution when the Chief Fiscal Officer of the State finds that internal administrative procedures and controls of the institution are not adequate.
