Please make sure to enter the appropriate commodity code when adding a line item in NC E-Procurement. This helps the State in determining what commodities are being purchased and what commodities should be on state contract for better pricing. If a good is being purchased, please select a non 900-level commodity code. A 900-level commodity code should be selected when adding a service line item. Catalog items have commodity codes pre-loaded for your convenience. For non-catalog items, you can search for a commodity code in NC E-Procurement by typing the commodity code or the item description. Commodity Codes can also be found on P&C's webpage. The 'Item Classification' indicator defaults based on the commodity code selected. If you would like help in determining the correct commodity code, please contact the NC E-Procurement Help Desk at 888-211-7440, option 1, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Services such as labor and freight/shipping should always be entered as a separate line item from goods. Freight/shipping may be listed as 962-86 (Transportation of Goods and Other Freight Services) and labor should be entered as the 900-level commodity code that most closely matches the work being completed. Please view the below list of commodity codes for other service commodity codes that are commonly used.
