Event Details

Selling to the Government:  eVA is Virginia’s online, electronic procurement system.  A web-based vendor registration and purchasing system that allows state agencies, colleges, universities and many local governments to conduct all purchasing and sourcing activities for goods and services. Learn how eVA can be used to identify the right business opportunities & government buyers, as well as information on B2B Connect (Business-to-Business Connect).

Each year the Commonwealth of Virginia spends billions of dollars on goods and services. The Commonwealth wants to do business with small, women owned, and minority-owned businesses. This workshop will provide information about the Virginia procurement process.  The first step to do business with the Commonwealth is to become registered on the eVA system!

This workshop is designed to extend your knowledge of the eVA Procurement Portal. You will receive information on how to register and create an account … and how to use eVA as a resource tool to aid you in the Virginia Procurement Process… if you are already registered, refresh your skills in navigating the online web application.
