How do I find a valid Commodity Code for my RQS/Solicitation/Award?

Using the “Pick List” icon to the right of the Commodity Code field provides a powerful tool to sort through and locate the proper Commodity Code(s) for your document.

By setting a value of “Yes” on the “Active” dropdown, any results returned will be limited to active Commodity Codes.

Using asterisks (*) as wild cards to fill in any unknown values will assist in narrowing down returned search results.

Once you have entered your search parameters, selecting t“Browse”, located in the upper/left hand side of the screen, will narrow your search results based on your search query.
