State Program Code is defined by the Department of Finance to identify a group of interdependent or interrelated activities, directed toward the achievement of a common goal or objective. This program structure must be maintained to provide consistency in program identification across fiscal years in the databases of the State's computerized Budget, Accounting and Fiscal Information Systems.

State agencies may keep their internal program accounting records in greater detail than the Governor's Budget; however, they should maintain the State Program Code as an attribute on their local chart of accounts for reconciliation with the State.

For Capital Outlay programs, the agency specific program code will denote the capital outlay - program within a department's overall program structure. This code is part of State's program classification structure.
