DEQ supports Virginia's e-commerce through eVA, which is a web-based purchasing system used by Virginia government. State agencies, colleges, universities and many local governments use eVA to announce bid opportunities, invite bidders, receive quotes, and place orders for goods and services.
Please review our policy statement and electronic procurement requirements.
All purchases, regardless of dollar value, are made in accordance with the Virginia Public Procurement Act (VPPA), the DPS Agency Procurement and Surplus Property Manual (APSPM), and DEQ policies and procedures.
This public body does not discriminate against faith-based organizations.
Any vendor providing goods or nonprofessional services to the Commonwealth should be familiar with the Vendors Manual.
DEQ follows its Annual SWAM Procurement Plan to establish affirmative principles, methods and procedures for utilization of minority-owned, women-owned, and small businesses in agency procurement activities. DEQ encourages minority-owned, women-owned, and small businesses to participate. DEQ is committed to the set-aside mandate issued in Executive Order 33 (2006) "Enhancing Opportunities for Small, Women - and Minority-Owned Businesses."
