The Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) and Texas Department of Information Resources also use the NIGP code to help purchasers source commodities and services through statewide contracts.
Class Codes 001 to 899 are commodities/products and 900 to 999 are services.

Search by “keyword” or class. The codes use a two-part naming system; the first three digits are the class number, and the last two are the item number. The three-digit class number denotes the general category for the item or service the purchaser requires. The two-digit item number denotes the item or items that fall under the class number. Some item numbers include more than one item description. A class number can include several items that have the same basic function but belong in the class and item number.
