A program number consists of a five-digit number and supplements accounting for revenues and/or expenditures by departments that use project accounting systems. Use of the program code is not required in non-agriculture departments, but it is a required code in Agriculture departments due to federal reporting requirements in the Agriculture Budget Office.
Program codes are used by departments to track a variety of activities, rather than using separate fund numbers. Some departments use program numbers to track the revenues and expenses of certain courses or workshops. Some use the numbers to track revenue/expenses of certain instructors or programs. Program numbers are assigned by the Accounting Office or the Agriculture Budget Office.
General ledger reports and inquiries are available in PeopleSoft/Oracle to obtain information on program numbers.
