The Virginia House of Burgesses was the first legislative assembly of elected representatives in North America. The House was established by the Virginia Company, which created the body as part of an effort to encourage English craftsmen to settle in North America, and to make conditions in the colony more agreeable for its current inhabitants.

eVA Local Government Guidelines

The eVA system was established based on a self-funding approach.  eVA order transaction fees sustain the eVA system.  For orders issued by local government users, these fees are usually collected from the vendor that received the order; however, when a local government user issues an order to a vendor not registered in eVA, the eVA order transaction fees may be re-billed to the local government entity.  A copy of the eVA Fee Schedule is published on the eVA Billing & Payment Portal. For more information, please contact your local AE.

 

The following guidelines, developed by DGS/DPS, are to be followed when ordering through the eVA eMall:

 

(1) Credit Card Purchases: Users may purchase goods or services through the e-Mall, up to their CARD LIMITS. If purchased from state contracts or from another sources, the Contract terms and conditions govern these purchases.

 

(2) Electronic Purchase Orders: Users may purchase goods or services in unlimited dollar amounts, unless when placing an electronic purchase order from state contracts or mandatory sources (such as the Visually Handicap and/or Correction Enterprises) and specific dollar amounts are specified in the contract.

 

(3) For all other purchases, users may purchase up to their procurement authority after complying with all competitive requirements and file documentation per the Virginia Public Procurement Act (VPPA) and their own organization’s policies and procedures.
