(You can learn more about the activities of each branch of government and the individual departments in the Executive Branch by visiting the Government section of the Colorado Official Web Portal at

Amounts spent for each department.
Amounts spent by individual agencies within each department. The number of agencies within a department varies based on state statutes or on how the department chooses to organize its activities.
The Fund (or Funds) the agency uses to record its activities. Funds are created in state statute by the Legislature or are required by generally accepted accounting principles. The number of funds in which an agency operates varies because of legislation or the type of activities it engages in.
Expenditure Code Category is a broad category of the type of expenditures such as travel, supplies, or wages.
Expenditure Code is the specific type of goods or services for which the expenditure occurred.
Vendor Name is the name of the company or individual who received the payment. In those instances where the expenditure code amount was increased or decreased but no vendor payment was involved, the transaction information has been aggregated into categories. Examples of transactions not involving a vendor include transfers from one agency to another agency (most often required by legislative appropriation and called IT - Intragovernmental Entries), corrections of accounting errors, and allocations of previous payments and accounting entries (generally referred to as JV-Account Entries).
