The international classification system for procurement items called the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) will replace the Government of Canada’s Goods and Services Identification Numbers (GSIN) codes in 2017. The GSIN to UNSPSC mapping is currently in development. Once finalized, the mapping will be shared as open data. Visit the “About UNSPSC” page to learn more: https://buyandsell.gc.ca/procurement-data/unspsc/about-unspsc. The Procurement Data Dictionary offers a description of each data field contained in the UNSPSC file, as well as other datasets published on Buyandsell.gc.ca. The XML file is meant to be used as a guide for understanding the various data elements. It is updated on an “as needed” frequency to reflect changes to data elements on Buyandsell.gc.ca.
