Notes on Version C17.1:

  1. Please remember that ProClass is a procurement classification, not a finance classification. Therefore it is for classifying products and services that are purchased. It is not for classifying people, projects or budgets. The purpose of ProClass is to classify spend into useful headings that will help identify savings and areas for collaboration, which in turn will lead to more efficient procurement and further savings.

  2. Version C17.1 expands and clarifies the scope of the Passenger Transport section.  Other changes include expansions of the Clothing and Stationery sections.  For a full list of changes in this release, see the 'Changes' and 'Audit' worksheets.

  3. The headings are in alphabetical order including new headings, except the 'Not Elsewhere Classified' headings which are still at the end of each section. 

  4. When the word 'Children' is used, for instance in services, this includes 'Youth'.

  5. Please remember 'Not Elsewhere Classified' is not the same as 'Miscellaneous', as only products and services that cannot be classified elsewhere would be included here.

  6. Please note that when some words have alternative spellings, for consistency the preferred spelling is taken from the Oxford English Dictionary.

  7. For any proposed additions or changes to be included in the next release, please either post them on the ProClass Forum or fill in the contact form on the ProClass website.

  8. For Emergency Services specific headings, please see ProClass Emergency Services Classification
