  • Best Practice for SPCC file
    • Theater and Dance SPCC checklist
    • Facilities SPCC/small business checklist
    • Pauline Jenkins was cited for having an exemplary SPCC file
  • Best Practice for Contracts file
    • Melva Kishpaugh was commended for meticulous term contract files

Thank you!



eVA is the first point of entry for purchase orders, in the unique circumstances where purchases are entered into eVA after the fact, the eVA confirming order must be entered within 5 days.



Experiencing problems while using eVA? Updating browser to internet explorer 9 may eliminate issues.  To check what version of internet explorer is being used on your pc, go to the browser and select ‘About Internet Explorer’ from the Help menu.  If you are using an older version, try updating the browser for a better eVA experience.



Beat the Sweep…SPCC Cardholders and Reviewers receive a monthly “Beat the Sweep” email from Melissa Myers, UMW SPCC Program Administrator.  The message advises cardholders and reviewers to code and sign-off of all transactions in advance of the 22nd of each month in order to comply with program timelines.

This monthly message goes to all SPCC contacts, if coding and sign-offs are complete, we thank you in advance and no further action is needed.

If you have any questions, please contact the SPCC Program Administrator, Melissa Myers: or call x1057.


SWaM for FY12

UMW has ended FY12 with 35% SWaM usage as reported by the Department of Minority Business Enterprise.  Thank you to all departments for your continued effort in using small businesses whenever available.  The goal for FY13 is to have 40% for SWaM.



The Purchasing Office would also like to recognize the concentrated effort being extended by the Dahlgren campus in support of our SWaM initiative.  Dahlgren managed to spend approximately $68,000 on small vendors in its first partial year of operation.
