Bids & Proposals

The University of Mary Washington’s active formal solicitations are posted on the eVA Virginia Business Opportunities (VBO) website. It is the prospective bidder/offeror’s responsibility to ensure that the entire solicitation package, in its latest version (including attachments or addenda), is reviewed prior to submitting a response. Questions pertaining to specific solicitations must be addressed to the Buyer named in the solicitation, not the Contract Administrator. If you experience difficulty in downloading files, please call 540-654-1127 for assistance.

Note: If bids or proposals are scheduled to be received during a period of suspended university business operations, the rescheduled bid receipt and opening will take place at the same time on the next regular business day.
