The West Virginia Purchasing Division has been hard at work planning the 2021 Agency Purchasing Conference, which will be offered virtually this year via the teleconferencing software WebEx.  Registration will open July 12, 2021 to all state agency procurement officers who procure under the authority of West Virginia Code § 5A-3.  Registration will take place through the external site SurveyMonkey, and a link to that form will be shared via email to all designated procurement officers and posted on this webpage July 12, 2021.

This year’s agenda includes 20 sessions and topics, including Purchasing Card Program, Vendor Registration, Office of Technology Requirements, and Statewide Contracts.

Registration Fee

There is zero cost to participate in this virtual conference.  We understand the challenges agencies have faced over the last year and a half, and we also understand the importance of developing and refreshing your knowledge on the state’s purchasing processes and procedures.  Therefore, we invite all procurement officers to participate in these webinar sessions free of charge, space permitting.
