What You Should Know
Category codes are used to classify and manage goods and services. When creating a requisition a user must select the appropriate category code for the item being purchased. Category codes are tied to Account. When you are applying a chartstring to your purchase, you can change the Account.
When you make a request for purchase in the Prime Marketplace, the category will default based on the item selected. However, if you are creating a Special Request Requisition, you will need to select the appropriate category code.
