The Commodity Code document defines categories of items purchased from a vendor by assigning a set of attributes to a code.
The following parameters are used to configure functionality around Commodity Codes:
- ENABLE_DEFAULT_VENDOR_COMMODITY_CODE_IND: When set to Y commodity codes assigned to the selected vendor will default on the line items.
- AUTO_ADD_COMMODITY_CODES_TO_VENDOR_IND: When set to Y commodity codes are automatically added to vendors when a Requisition becomes a Purchase Order. The first commodity code added, in this way, will be made the default for the vendor.
- B2B_COMMODITY_CODE: Commodity code that will be added to purchase order lines created from shop catalog requisitions when commodity codes are required on the Purchase Order.
- ENABLE_COMMODITY_CODE_IND: When set to Y the commodity code field displays on the Requisition and Purchase Order line items.
- ITEMS_REQUIRE_COMMODITY_CODE_IND (Components: Requisition and Purchase Order): When set to Y commodity code is required on the Requisition and/or Purchase Order above the line items.
- UNORDERED_ITEM_DEFAULT_COMMODITY_CODE: If commodity code is enabled and required on purchase order items the commodity code specified in this parameter will be used on unordered items when a Purchase Order Amendment document is created from a Line Item Receiving document.
- Commodity Code: Commodity codes can be used to categorize purchases. Kuali Financials is not delivered with a commodity code structure, but the system is designed so that industry standards can be loaded into the table or your organization can adopt its own coding structure.

Sales Tax Indicator: Indicates if sales tax should be assessed on this commodity code when the Sales Tax functionality is enabled.
