What is the Purchasing Charge Card (P-Card)?
Purchase cards offer state agencies and institutions the opportunity to streamline their procedures for procuring and paying for small dollar goods and services. The P-Card reduces the volume of accounts payable transactions by eliminating vendor invoices and consolidating vendor payments into one monthly payment.

eVA is Virginia's online, electronic procurement system. This Web-based vendor registration and purchasing system allows state agencies, colleges, universities and many local governments to use eVA to conduct all purchasing and sourcing activities for goods and services.
