In the spend data set then I look at departments there are many of them that are only number (i.e. 400-841-68N) Why is that? and where can I find the name of the department they are associated with?

Department codes are not regulated city-wide. Each Agency has a different set of department codes. Some agencies may use numerical codes to determine departments and some agencies might use names. If you need a further understanding, I would be happy to communicate directly. My email address is nboone@comptroller.nyc.gov.
