Hawaii Revised Statutes 40-3 Bookkeeping.

§40-3 Bookkeeping. The comptroller shall keep a complete set of double entry books in which the comptroller shall open or cause to be opened all government accounts, and for the several amounts as shown by the appropriation bill, or any other appropriation that may be at any time made by the legislature, and the comptroller shall record the comptroller's daily business transactions in detail therein. The comptroller shall also keep ledgers in which the comptroller shall open, arrange, and keep in a methodical and systematic manner the various state accounts so that the status and condition of all funds and appropriations, of all assets and liabilities, and for all income and expenditures of the State may at any time be ascertained and known; and further, the comptroller shall keep books to be known as the warrant registers showing the warrants drawn. The warrants are to be numbered from one up to the number required for the current fiscal period, and in the form as shown in section 40-52, and all such other auxiliary books as the comptroller may deem necessary for a correct and proper administration of the comptroller's office. The comptroller shall also keep on file in a convenient form for easy reference all original warrant vouchers for which warrants have been drawn by the comptroller, and the original warrant vouchers shall have endorsed thereon the number of the warrant by which they were paid, the date of the warrant, the appropriation to which they were debited, and the amount.
