Small Purchase Procedures

University users may now access eVA using UMW single sign-on. From the login page, select “Log in with your agency account.” Contact Procurement at x1127 if you have any difficulties.

Customer Satisfaction Surveyseptember-eupdate

The results are in! For FY16, the Procurement Team achieved an overall 94% customer satisfaction rating, with 100% in timeliness, accuracy, communication, helpfulness, and expected cost. Thank you to all who completed the survey.

Annex A Removal

The removal of Annex A is complete. Special thanks to Dale Elethorp who championed the surplus of the unit and coordination of the removal with King George Public Schools. Thanks to others at UMW who supported the process: David Wilt, Jonathan Moore, UMW Grounds, Parking, Facilities team, and a host of others. Annex B will soon become our next focus!

  • Campus-wide Janitorial: RFP is on the street
  • Unarmed Security Services: RFP is on the street

UMW Book Club

The UMW Book Club will meet at noon on Wednesday, September 21, in the Bookstore to discuss Great Falls, and YA novel by Steve Watkins. Visitors are welcome! Contact Margaret Mock in the Bookstore for more information, x1017.

IDA Classes

The Bookstore is continuing to explore options for Inclusive Digital Access (IDA). The program focus is on lowering course material costs for students, improving access, and enhancing learning outcomes. This semester, Professors Steven Greenlaw and Allyson Poska are participating in Phase II of the project. The student course material cost in Professor Greenlaw’s class will be $20, an estimated savings of $246 based on the average cost of other Econ 201 course materials, and $85 for Professor Poska’s class, a savings of $115. The cost of materials will be billed directly to the student’s UMW account (unless they opt out of digital selection). The Bookstore looks forward to working with faculty to expand Open Education Resources/IDA opportunities for students.
