In DAS Central Procurement's efforts to assist the vendor community and encourage business with the State of Iowa, the following reports include the types of goods and services the State purchased in recent fiscal years (FY). The totals reflect payments to vendors where a commodity code for goods or services was referenced.
When identifying goods and services, the State uses a commodity code classification published by the National Institute of Government Purchasing (NIGP). Vendors who would like to receive State solicitation (bid) notifications must be registered with the appropriate NIGP Commodity Code(s) in I/3 using the State of Iowa's vendor portal, Vendor Self Service (VSS).
- To register your business or verify your commodity codes in I//3, go to the VSS website. Instructions are available on the website. VSS tutorials are also available online.
- For a list of commodity codes used by the State of Iowa in I/3, refer to the NIGP Commodity Code list.
- For more information, visit the DAS Central Procurement website on How to do business with the State.
