Commodity Codes

MyFloridaMarketPlace (MFMP) uses an internationally accepted and standardized code set known as the United Nations Standard Products and Services Classification (UNSPSC). UNSPSC standardization allows for enhanced spend analytics and better methods to manage future code changes. The standardization also provides the ability to better target vendors to receive solicitation notifications and reduces the effort for vendors to provide catalogs to the State of Florida. 

United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) is an open, public standard system of numbers (with descriptions) designed to identify and list commodities or services by categories and classes. UNSPSC uses a hierarchy to make codes easier to search and manage during procurement activities. The hierarchy allows spend analysis reports to summarize spend data to highest levels or allow users to drill down to the detailed spend categories. MFMP utilizes the four UNSPSC levels to organize goods and services into the following:

* Segment – First 2 digits

          * Family – Second 2 digits

                  * Class – Third 2 digits

                          * Commodity ‐ Fourth 2 digits


UNSPSC Structure Sample Code Sample     Description
2 Digit (Segment) Code 43000000 Information Technology Broadcasting and Telecommunications
4 Digit (Segment-Family) Code 43210000 Computer Equipment and Accessories
6 Digit (Segment-Family -Class) Code 43211500 Computers



8 Digit (Segment-Family–Class-Commodity) Code

43211501 Computer Servers
43211502 High-end Computer Servers
43211503 Notebook Computers
43211504 Personal Digital Assistant PDAs or Organizers

Commodity Code Governance Process

Every State of Florida agency customer has the ability to submit a request to make a code update (add, remove, move, or rename) from the current version of UNSPSC codes.  A Commodity Code Review Team, comprised of agency customers and the MFMP team, also completes an annual review of  any new versions of code sets released by UNSPSC to determine which codes to activate in MFMP. View the UNSPSC Change Management Process project page to learn more about this process.
