Equity Work – Ways to Work With Us

  • eVA: How to be become a vendor with the state – As a state agency, the Blue Ridge Health District can generally only pay organizations and consultants if they are registered in eVA, the state’s procurement system.  Here is a step-by-step guide to registering as a vendor.  For questions on this process contact evacustomercare@dgs.virginia.gov or 1-866-289-7367.
  • Community engagement workshop and policy – Thanks to funding from the Kresge Foundation, we will be releasing a call for proposals in September 2021 for a consultant to help us develop a district-wide community engagement strategy, including how to create and support a public health community advisory committee.  The call for proposals will be listed in eVA.
  • Health department history/curriculum – We have talked to several community partners about developing a curriculum using primary and secondary sources, including Board of Health minutes, interviews with community members and Virginia Department of Health policy documents, to tell the story of public health in our district and state.  We will likely be releasing a call for proposals to help with this work in spring 2022. 
  • MAPP2Health – We will be working with our partners at Sentara Martha Jefferson Health System, UVA Health and the UVA Public Health Sciences Program to launch the next MAPP2Health process. We hope you will contribute to this process.  Check our website for more information and updates.
