What is Order Splitting ?

As a state agency, we follow the guidelines set in the Agency Procurement and Surplus Property Manual (APSPM) for the Commonwealth of Virginia which states:

Order Splitting Prohibition.  The placement of multiple orders within other than a reasonable time period to one or more vendors for the same, like, or related goods or services to avoid using the appropriate method of procurement or to remain within delegated purchasing authority is prohibited.

If you need assistance with an order, please contact the Purchasing department.

We are working to reach our agency goal of  40% spend with DMBE certified small businesses.  Thanks to all departments who contribute to this effort.  As we enter the final quarter of FY12, we are well on the way to meeting our target.  UMW status shown below:

PARKING UPDATE – CONVERGENCE CENTER CONSTRUCTION

We have received several communications regarding the ITCC project and its impact on campus traffic patterns.

To reiterate what has been shared:

ITCC “early phase” of the construction project is underway (from roughly the end of March to the end of May), two parking spots behind the Library and four spots behind Pollard Hall will be lost.  Also, the handicapped spaces near Jepson Hall will be closed – this area is being enlarged from the current two handicapped spaces to a total of seven spaces.  These new spaces will be open after May 2012.  There might be a need to temporarily eliminate one space in the Jepson lot to facilitate some truck traffic while the temporary construction road is built.  (It is not entirely clear if this will be required at this point.)
