National Institute of Governmental Purchasing

The National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) Codes allow the state to classify the dollar amount of purchases of goods and services. By separating the total dollar amount of purchases by NIGP code, the State Purchasing Division and individual state entities can gain greater insight into where tax dollars are being spent and where contracts could help to improve efficiency and save money.


The NIGP list is a complete list of codes found in the Georgia Procurement Registry.
