Article summary


Grant ChartField is used to track Financial Assistance that provides support or stimulation to accomplish a public purpose. Grant ChartField value is five (5) characters in length and is established via interface from Florida Accountability and Tracking System (FACTS). Agencies exempt from recording contracts and agreements in FACTS per 215.985, F.S., may establish grant values directly in Florida PALM using the Grant Information Page. The Grant Information Page serves as a centralized location that captures specific information about the ChartField value that is needed for reporting and analysis.

The following design considerations are applied when defining Grant value in Florida PALM:

  • Grant values are GL Business Unit specific and only available for use by the associated GL Business Unit; these values are not shared across agencies.
  • Grant values must be unique within a GL Business Unit but may be duplicated across GL Business Units.
  • Grant is not required on all transactions.
  • Grant value must be established on the Grant Information Page in Florida PALM.


The following assumption is considered when defining a Grant:

  • Agencies follow internal agency-specific procedures to establish Grant values.
  • For most agencies, (FACTS) will continue to provide Grant values.
  • The ChartField Structure Request is not available for the Grant ChartField.


For Grant values established through FACTS, the values are maintained directly in FACTS and are updated via interface from FACTS. For Grant values not established through FACTS, the values are maintained in Florida PALM directly by each FACTS exempt agency on the Grant Information Page.
