Agencies

1.0 General Information

1.1 Statutory References

CGS Section 4-69

1.2 Definitions

An agency for accounting purposes is defined as the lowest organizational unit which receives appropriations and/or allotments and therefore is assigned an agency code.

1.3 Agency Types

An agency such as the Office of the State Comptroller for which the General Assembly appropriates for the office as a whole is a single agency with a single agency code. The Budget and Financial Division, Core-CT, etc. are sub-units and thus receive no separate agency codes.

The Civil Air Patrol is not a unit of state government, however, it receives a direct appropriation from the General Assembly, so it is assigned an agency code.

Parent-Subsidiary Agencies. These are situations where the General Assembly appropriates for the "department" or "Parent" as a whole but the constituent units are controlled by the allotment process. In this case the constituent unit (subsidiary) becomes an agency and is assigned an agency code. Examples are:
