Event Details

Are you a small, women-owned, or minority-owned business who wants to do business with the Commonwealth of Virginia?

Small business owners who are looking to participate in Virginia’s specialized procurement and contracting opportunities are encouraged to become SWaM certified. The SWaM certification is a vehicle to promote economic growth of Virginia’s businesses.

Becoming SWaM certified is just the first step in doing business with the Commonwealth. Each year the state buys goods and services totaling more than $8 billion. The Commonwealth of Virginia wants to do business with you and increase participation of small, women owned, and minority-owned businesses. Virginia’s eProcurement portal – eVA is Virginia’s online, electronic procurement system.

This workshop will cover the SWaM Program and certification types, application process and the new on-line portal (live demo), required documents and how to use the certification to do business with the Commonwealth (intro to eVA, Virginia’s Online Procurement Portal).
