Vendor Commodity/Service Codes (NIGP Code)
The City uses the NIGP Code for vendor management. The Code is the most widely used commodity/service code in the public sector. Several agencies in South Florida use the Code including Broward County, Broward Schools, Coral Springs, Hollywood, Ft. Lauderdale, Lauderdale Lakes, Miami, Miramar, Tamarac, and the State of Florida. So, if you’re a registered vendor with any one of those entities, you should be familiar with the Code.
The Code allows:
- Vendors to register and assign themselves codes associated with the products and services they offer.
- Purchasing to effectively source purchases by matching the right vendors to the right bid opportunity.
- The City to report exactly what it's buying, how much, and from whom.
When registering via the e-Procurement Marketplace, please ensure that you select all commodities codes that apply to the products and services you offer. For a list of commodity codes, please call us at 954.480.4381.
