Order Class Codes for BruinBuy

Order class codes identify the transaction type within BruinBuy/PAC.  They define who may process each transaction (campus departments, Campus Purchasing, or restricted departments) and affect how it is later reported. The order class code is part of the BruinBuy/PAC Order Number.

Generally, order classes N and V can be used for almost any product or service except travel.  Other order class codes are restricted to specific uses, as indicated in the BruinBuy Order Class Codes chart

Note:  Remember to check with campus departments that may provide the product or service you need using recharge before searching for an off-campus vendor.
