Category Codes and Award Suppliers by Category
Why is there no data in some of the category codes?
Not all bids/proposals and resulting contracts are for Districtwide use. Many of the procurements are for specific projects or programs. For example Food and Child Nutrition bids, these bids are just for the use of the Food and Child Nutrition Department using federal dollars and are not available for schools and /or departments.
Some category codes are for internal use and will never have an awarded supplier attached to it for example; check requisitions, Graphics internal requisitions, registrations for conferences etc.
