Training

To support campus through the transition to the new eVA, we will be offering self-guided eLearnings, virtual synchronous training sessions, and in-person trainings (if possible). As we get closer to the fall semester we will have more information about these different training sessions. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 Why are we moving to a 'New eVA?'

The contract the Commonwealth had been using for the current eVA system is about to expire, and as a result, The Department of General Services (DGS) completed an RFP for a new system. Also, the current eVA system was first turned on back in 2001, and the new eVA will be a modern system that brings better functionality and a more consistent look and feel across the system.

 Will I still need to use eVA?

Yes. Departments will still be required to use the new eVA, just as they would the current version.

 When will New eVA launch?

The new eVA will launch in December of 2021, however, at this time we don’t have an exact date. We anticipate that the final cutover date will be close to or during JMU’s winter break.

 Will I be trained on how to use the new eVA?

Yes, see the above training section for links to self-guided eLearnings, virtual training, and in-person training events.

 Will the eVA exclusions still be the same?

Yes, the existing eVA exclusions will remain as they are today.

eVA Purchase Exclusions

Yes. The current sign-in process using your JMU eID and password will remain the same.

 Will I still be able to look up my old orders?

Yes, all previous orders and requisitions will still be searchable, but the location where you will be able to find older requisitions and purchase orders will different from newer ones.

Orders created or modified within the last two years, will be transferred over into the new version of eMall/eForms, and will also be located in the Reporting and Resource Center area of eVA. Orders created or modified before approximately October 2019 will only be accessible in the Reporting and Resource Center area of eVA.

 Will I be able to copy previous orders done in the old system?

If the order was created or modified within the last two years, it will be transferred over into the new version of eMall/eForms, and you will be able to copy it to create new requisitions. Orders created or modified before approximately October 2019 will only be accessible in the Reporting and Resource Center area of eVA, so you will not be able to copy those orders to create new requisitions.

 Will requisitions in composing status be transferred?

No, any requisitions that have not been submitted and are in composing status will not be transferred to the new eVA.
