Doing Business With The PRHA


Welcome to the Portsmouth Redevelopment and Housing Authority (PRHA) Procurement Department.  The primary mission of the Procurement Department is to serve as the central purchasing and materials management department for PRHA while complying with all applicable Federal, State, and Local laws. 

We seek to acquire economical and quality goods, services, and construction with as much competition as the open market will provide.  Consequently, we are always seeking new, qualified suppliers/vendors who will receive fair and equitable treatment while working with our agency.  Working with PRHA offers new opportunities to use your know-how, develop new markets and expand existing ones.

This section provides information on how to do business with PRHA and on upcoming Procurement solicitations such as Invitation for Bids (IFBs), Request for Proposals (RFPs) and Requests for Qualifications (RFQs).  All solicitation are available on eVA**, the Commonwealth of Virginia eProcurement website at www.eva.virginia.gov and on this website.  The PRHA Statement of Procurement Policy is located under Forms.

PRHA encourages vendors to visit the eVA website and register in order to receive electronic notification of future and current opportunities at https://eva.virginia.gov/register-now.html. There are no fees associated with the registration. Vendors are also instructed to read and become familiar with the Commonwealth of Virginia's Vendor Manual that is available for download from this site. The Vendor Manual is a wealth of information on how to do business with State agencies and gives general guidance on the State procurement laws.
