DGS wins national award for innovation for mobile to support statewide electronic procurement program, eVA

Richmond, VA - The Department of General Services recently was awarded the nation’s top prize for innovative state procurement programs for its mobile applications supporting eVA, the Commonwealth’s electronic procurement system.

   The National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) presented the George Cronin Award for Procurement Excellence to the department’s Division of Purchases and Supply on Sept. 9 at the organization’s national conference in Burlington, Vermont.

   Virginia was recognized for its two enterprise eProcurement mobile apps _ eVA Mobile 4 Business and eVA Mobile 4 Approvers _ which puts state, local and higher education bidding processes directly at the fingertips of users and gives business unit approvers real-time access to approve requisitions. These apps provide a fast, secure and easy way to conduct thorough reviews of solicitations and keep purchase processes moving from the convenience of any mobile device.

   Since its inception in 2001, eVA has generated over $338 million in savings for the reduced cost of goods and services through 4.7 million purchase orders. From paper clips to complex consulting services, to vehicles and everything in between, state agencies, local governments and institutes of higher education have the capability to use eVA to buy all of the goods and services needed to help keep government operating.

Helping Government Get Down to Business

The Department of General Services makes it easier for government to do business – and Virginians to do business with government – by providing a broad range of services to citizens, the Commonwealth, and business.
