German term or phrase: EVC; EVD
These two abbreviations have me stumped. Both appear in a brief job description for a drafter. Unfortunately, the company the drafter works for does not have a website and the company itself is not the client I'm dealing with (first agency, then law firm, then company), so it's hard to get an answer from the horse's mouth. Context is minimal:

"Stellenbeschreibung Technischer Zeichner EVC" and
"Zu dem Aufgabengebiet gehört des Weiteren die Erstellung von Stücklisten, Stammdatenblättern und Änderungsmitteilungen zur Weiterbearbeitung durch EVD."

Thanks in advance for any help with these.

Explanation:
I have no idea what EVC might stand for, but maybe "EVD" could be a mis-spelling of "EDV" - Elektronische Datenverarbeitung? Seems to fit in the context.

I don't think that was the case here, but I appreciate your effort. Nobody else responded and nothing else turned up, so I simply notified the client (in my case, the agency) of the ambiguity.
