DEQ  For Vendors

DEQ supports Virginia's e-commerce through eVA, which is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s web-based e-procurement system for announcing bid opportunities, submitting quotes and placing orders for goods and services. State agencies and institutions are required to use eVA.  Please review our Policy Statement and Electronic Procurement Requirements.

Policy Statement

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 Commonwealth of Virginia “Vendors Manual”.

DEQ follows its Annual SWAM Procurement Plan to establish affirmative principles, methods and procedures for utilization of micro, small, minority-owned and women-owned businesses in Agency procurement activities. DEQ encourages micro, small, minority-owned and women-owned businesses to participate in DEQ procurement opportunities; and encourages eligible  small, minority-owned and women-owned businesses to become certified as a “Micro Business”. DEQ is committed to the set-aside mandate issued in Executive Order Number 20 (2014) "Advancing Equity for Small, Women and Minority Owned Businesses."
