The OEO wants to make it easier for government and private entities to search for and locate certified M/WBE vendors. To make this possible, all certified M/WBEs are requested to select at least one industry and at least one commodity/service code that best describe their service offerings.
Each M/WBE vendor must make a selection from the available list of North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes and the Missouri Department of Purchasing and Materials Management (DPMM) commodity/service codes.
Certified vendors may add or delete as many codes as often as needed. Vendors who participate in the State of Missouri’s Online Bid process, as a premium vendor, and have already chosen commodity codes on that site will have their commodity codes updated nightly, based on new selections made on DPMM’s site.
