Learn the Basics

Step by Step

  1. Understanding the eVA Requirement

    State law requires that 75 percent of the university’s purchasing dollars go to eVA-registered vendor ordering locations. Firms that do not register in eVA may be precluded from doing business with VCU and other agencies of the commonwealth. Both vendors and VCU are assessed an eVA fee on all such orders, with some exemptions.
