NEW EVA SEARCH BAR

We asked…and eVA listened. A couple of months ago, we inquired about creating a search bar on the eVA website that would allow users to complete simple searches such as quick quote information or reverse auction details. Now, there is a live search bar that allows a user to search detailed information in eVA much easier and faster.  Click Here.

ALTERNATE SWAM SEARCH GUIDE

If you are attempting to either locate or verify whether a vendor is a DSBSD certified small vendor and receive the ‘500-Internal Server Error’ on the SWaM search webpage, please use one of the alternate search methods available: ALTERNATE SWaM SEARCH GUIDE

Contact Procurement Services x1127 for further assistance.

ORDERING FURNITURE FROM VCE’S PUNCH-OUT CATALOG

After loading items in the “cart”:  to return from VCE’s furniture punch-out catalog to eVA, the user needs to click the button at the top “Transfer Your Order.- Clicking this button will post your order to your procurement system”; effectively transferring the cart back to eVA.  DO NOT click the “Close Punchout Catalog Shopping Session”.  This returns the user to eVA and empties the cart so that nothing purchased and entered into the cart will transfer back to eVA for completion of the order.   vce catalog
