Vendor Commodity Codes Tab

The Vendor Commodity Codes tab is used to assign commodity codes to this vendor. A commodity code may be added only by a Purchasing Department staff member.

The Purchasing Department assigns commodity codes to vendors in order to track spending by category. A vendor may be assigned multiple commodity codes. For example, a local company that both prints and designs documents might have two different commodity codes, one for printing and one for design.

Note: For information about adding commodity codes, see Commodity Code.
