IBIS uses a simple commodity coding structure [Excel 69kb] to allocate each supplier to a main commodity group. The codes are detailed in the supporting material for use with the Model.

The sub-division of the suppliers into these groupings enables a more detailed analysis to be completed.  For example, it will be possible to

  • Determine what areas of expenditure are well controlled and which are not
     
  • See areas where you should be looking to set up a formal arrangement either at institutional or, perhaps, consortia level
     
  • Identify where expenditure with an individual supplier or group of suppliers is close to, or above, the current EU thresholds.  This should be investigated to determine if there is a compliance issue
     

A popular coding structure within HE is the Proc HE comodity coding and UNSPSC coding or you could use the CPV codes that are used by the EU Commission.
