Governor announces launch of mobile business app

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell speaks with Sandra Sylvester, president and CEO of Superior Global Solutions, about her experience doing business in Virginia.
Gov. Bob McDonnell has announced the launch of a free mobile application for eVA, Virginia’s award-winning electronic procurement system. The eVA Mobile 4 Business app allows anyone with an internet-enabled mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry, etc.) to have real-time access to Virginia government business opportunities—anywhere, anytime.

Virginia is the first state to launch a mobile app that brings bid opportunities and solicitations literally to the fingertips of its suppliers and the general public, giving them immediate access to the thousands of business opportunities published every year and providing increased visibility into how state government spends the taxpayers’ dollars. The app also includes personalized features allowing businesses to follow specific opportunities by adding them to a Watch List.

Residents can get the app in Apple and Android stores by searching for eVA Mobile 4 Business or visit http://www.eva.virginia.gov/evamobile.

Forbes.com recently lauded Virginia and the eVA Program as one of the top 10 state/local governments to storm industry by transacting into the Cloud. Cloud computing has proven that government agencies can provide improved services at lower cost. The Commonwealth of Virginia saves about $30 million annually through its eVA Program by leveraging a Software as a Service in the Cloud, which, to date, has conducted more than 3.7 million purchases for over $33 billion for hundreds of state agencies, institutions and local governments.
