The narrative must include mission, goals, statutory and regulatory basis of each program, and a brief history of the agency's administration of the program.

Each separate program administered by an agency must be included in the recommendation with that program's share of each of the amounts appropriated for each budget category and specific source of funds for the appropriations. The narratives must conform to a format established by the Office of State Budget for the State Budget and Control Board."
