Signature authority is a formal delegation that allows an individual to sign or otherwise enter into an agreement that legally binds the university to terms and conditions. This includes written contracts that bind or obligate the university to a financial or a non-financial commitment. Agreements signed by unauthorized employees or agents are not valid and do not bind the university.
CONFUSING EVA EXPENDITURE TYPES
Skilled Services vs. Preceptor Services
There is now an expenditure type “Svcs, Skilled Other Preceptor” which should only be used for medical preceptors. However, it is easy to accidentally choose this expenditure type when intending to choose “Svcs, Skilled, Other”. Please be careful to choose the correct one.
WHAT IS EVA?
eVA is the Commonwealth of Virginia's electronic vendor registration and purchasing system that provides a standardized, transparent source of public procurement information. The University does not purchase goods and services directly through eVA, but is required to send purchase data to eVA. All transactions, including the University's, incur fees to support the maintenance of the system.
Note: The following applies only to vendors providing goods and services to UVA. It does not apply to individuals registering as payees with UVA in order to be paid a reimbursement.
