Discretionary Spend:

The total dollars paid by state agencies to vendors for goods and services including construction through contracts or purchase orders resulting in the process of procurement.  Payments to governmental entities, fees for services such as banking transactions, and payments that are not procurement related such as employee payroll, employee benefits, or utility monthly charges are not considered to be discretionary expenditures.

For reporting purposes, a list of specific account codes that are used to record these procurement payments in the Commonwealth’s Accounting System (Cardinal) has been identified.
