Last year, the Commonwealth of Virginia spent more than $6 Billion on goods and services. Goods and services that you probably sell! For every $100 the Commonwealth spent on goods and services, $37, went to a SWaM vendor. Are you getting your share???
The Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (SBSD) will be conducting one-on-one counseling sessions to help you capture your share of these expenditures. Some topics we’ll cover may include SWaM / Micro business certification, eVa (Virginia’s electronic procurement portal), etc. Examples of what the eVa portal include are:
- Identifying which state agencies are buying what you sell
- How much the agencies are paying for those products and services
- Who are the buyers and how to contact them
- Who are your competitors
- And much more
