eVA Small Business Update

NEW Vendor Look Up Feature Allows Full Export of SBSD Vendor List

From the bottom of the eVA website homepage you can access the list of active eVA Vendors.

The page has a link at the top right corner that gives you the full list of SBSD (Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity—formerly  DMBE) certified Vendors.  It matches what you get if you go to the SBSD website (www.sbsd.virginia.gov)

Now when you click to view the Full SBSD List there is a NEW link (“Export Full SBSD Vendor List to Excel”) that will give you the entire SBSD list (not just an export of the current page you’re viewing).
