How to Do Business With UVA

Procurement and Supplier Diversity Services provides bi-monthly vendor training sessions in order to help vendors understand the purchasing and accounts payable processes at the University.

This session aims to give both seasoned vendors and suppliers new to the University a better understanding of who buys for the University, what they buy, how they buy it, and how they pay for it. Vendors will also leave this informative session knowing more about:
  • SWaM
  • eVA
  • Navigating the Procurement Services website
  • State procurements
  • Business development
  • Available non-profit business assistance groups
  • ...and more!

Vendor Training is led by Eric Denby, Director of Procurement and Supplier Diversity Services. There is no fee to attend; however, ADVANCE online registration is required. Attendee registration is limited to two (2) people per business (seats are limited).
