Article summary


State Program is used to identify the plan for an organization and use of resources to meet specified objectives of the State. State Program tracks both revenue and expenditures for programs within or across organizations. State Program values are ten (10) characters long and remain unchanged from the Program Component values as established in Legislative Appropriation System/Planning and Budgeting Subsystem LAS/PBS.

The following design considerations are applied when defining a State Program in Florida PALM:

  • State Program values are standardized statewide.
  • State Program is configured under the statewide TableSet Control.
  • A ChartField Combination Edit rule is applied to restrict use of State Program values to select Budget Entity values as determined by the Legislature and EOG/OPB.
  • State Program values must be uniquely numbered.
  • State Program is required on all transactions.
  • Attributes may be defined when State Program values are established.


The following assumptions are considered when defining a State Program:

  • State Program values are determined by the Legislature, The Executive Office of the Governor and The Office of Policy and Budget EOG/OPB.
  • The Legislature and EOG/OPB define the appropriate correlation between State Program values and Budget Entity values.


State Program values in Florida PALM are centrally maintained by DFS through an interface from LAS/PBS. As values are added or inactivated, DFS will also update the ChartField Combination Edit rule accordingly to maintain the Budget Entity to State Program value relationship. The ChartField Structure Request is not available for the State Program ChartField. Agencies are not able to add or modify State Program values. State Program values have an effective date as of the start of the fiscal year in which the value was placed in use within Florida PALM.
