eVA Tips for Department Buyers

  1. When entering SPCC orders within eVA (PCO), against an established contract, include contract numbers within the comments field.
  2. eVA is the requisite statewide e-Procurement system, purchase orders should be entered to initiate an order. The practice of waiting for an invoice to enter the purchase order should be avoided.
  3. The XO2 purchase order category code should be used when entering requisitions to government agencies such as Virginia Correctional Enterprises (VCE), Virginia Distribution Center (VDC), Virginia Industries for the Blind (VIB), and Bureau of Capital Outlay Management (BCOM), for example. If you have any questions as to whether the XO2 should be used for eVA orders issued to other governmental entities, please contact Procurement Services for advice.
  4. The RO2 purchase order category code should be used for unregistered vendors.

If you need assistance with eVA, contact Procurement Services.
