When the OSIA was established in February 1988, financial services were provided by personnel on temporary duty from other DOD agencies, with the OSIA funding administered by the Defense Nuclear Agency. In June 1988, permanent OSIA financial positions were created, with a Comptroller Office placed under the Resource Management Division, which became part of the Directorate for Support in August 1988. The Comptroller function operated as a liaison with DNA financial managers until 1990, when the OSIA gained control over its own budget. With this, the Comptroller Division was established, gaining coequal status with Resource Management as a division of the Directorate for Support. The role of Acting Comptroller was shared by various individuals until June 1991, when the first official Comptroller was hired. On March 9, 1992, the Office of the Comptroller left the Directorate for Support and was elevated in status as a separate directorate.
