Training & Resources

Greetings, Campus Users:

The Procurement Services staff’s goal is to assist the University community in the purchase of the goods and services necessary to support the education and enrich the campus experience of UMW students.

The Procurement Services FAQ page has answers to many situations faced by our buyers on campus.  The resources below have been developed to assist buyers.

Training

  • Annual SPCC Training – Required annually for SPCC holders as directed by the Program Administrator.
  • Buyer Training – This training is required for new SPCC holders and is conducted by the TESS department.  Existing users are also encouraged to register for refresher training.
  • Contract Administrator Training – Required annually for designated Contract Administrators
  • Procurement Hands-On Lab – Procurement offers users the opportunity to receive hands-on support and assistance through weekly Hands-On Lab sessions. Registration for these sessions is strongly encouraged.

SWaM Vendor Locator

  • Transparency Report – Utilize this report to locate eVA Registered SWaM vendors.
  • DSBSD – Access this site to locate certified micro and small vendors.  Note that vendors on this site are not neccessarily eVA registered, as that registration is a separate process.

Cooperative Contracts

The VASCUPP website and contract database can be used to locate existing cooperative contracts available for use by the University. These contracts are issued by other higher education institutions around the state. Contact Procurement with any questions or if you want more information.

Other cooperative contracts may exist outside of VASCUPP for your needs. Contact Procurement Services to assist in finding an existing contract for your department’s purchases.

Forms

Procurement Forms – Locate contracting, SPCC and tax forms, as well as the VCE releases and a variety of other Procurement Forms here!
