Within the past few weeks, the commodity codes in RU Marketplace have undergone some changes. The new changes will provide a more accurate picture of University spending patterns for use in negotiating future contracts. This is a benefit to you, as better contracts mean better pricing from our suppliers, as well as improved service.
A complete listing of the new commodities codes, and which ones are acceptable on the appropriate RU Marketplace form (Quick Orders, Goods Requests, Service Requests and Check Requests) is available.
Please remember that choosing the correct (and valid) commodity code ensures that your unit is providing accurate information about its spending patterns. If you are unsure of which commodity code to select, please find the closest one to the type of purchase you are making.
Note: If copying a cart, please remember to update the commodity code field as some of the commodity codes that were active in the past, are now inactive.
