Va mobile app opens up procurement opportunities

The Commonwealth of Virginia has launched a mobile application for the state’s electronic procurement system (eVA) to make it easier to track business opportunities with government agencies in the state.

The Department of General Services' Division of Purchases and Supply worked with the CGI Group to develop eVA Mobile 4 Business, which gives those companies bidding on business greater access and transparency to track state procurements, officials said.

The mobile app includes one-touch access to solicitation details, integrated calendars, personalized watch lists and advanced search features.

“The eVA Mobile 4 Business app turns every smart phone into a portal to Virginia's cutting edge e-procurement system,” Gov. Bob McDonnell said during the recent launch of the mobile app. Not only does the app increase access and transparency for business and citizens, but it will expand the pool of potential bidders, saving taxpayer dollars, McDonnell said.

The eVA Mobile 4 Business app can be found in the Apple and Android app stores or accessed on a mobile device by going to www.eva.virginia.gov/evamobile.
