Public Access - Transparency in Procurement
eVA brings innovation to the promise of transparency. Leveraging web based technologies and tools, eVA not only provides public access to current, future and past procurements but also gives open access to detailed information on the rules, regulations, processes and standards behind these procurements. Participate, monitor, analyze or study… all of this information is available to every vendor, buyer, citizen and the public.
Core to this vision of eVA transparency is the continuous mission of the Commonwealth to meet the objectives set forth in the Virginia Public Procurement Act (VPPA):
- that procurements be conducted in a fair and impartial manner
that all qualified vendors have access to public business that no offeror be arbitrarily or capriciously excluded that competition be sought to the maximum feasible degree that procurement procedures involve openness and administrative efficiency that the rules governing contract awards be made clear in advance of the competition that specifications reflect the needs of the purchasing body rather than favor a particular vendor that the purchaser and vendor freely exchange information concerning what is sought and offered
