Access and Respond to Arlington County’s Formal Solicitations through Vendor Registry
Arlington County is using Vendor Registry for its electronic procurement system for formal solicitations. Arlington County is using the Commonwealth of Virginia’s electronic procurement system (eVA) for issuing informal and small purchase competitive requests.
Arlington County is in the process of migrating contracts from eVA to Vendor Registry. Thank you for your patience while we transition to one location.
