CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 712

November 21, 2008

TO: Printing and Publishing Officials of the Federal Government

SUBJECT: Rider Requisitions for the HHS Publications "Physical Activity Guidelines Materials"

This Circular Letter is to announce a change in procurement method for the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Federal Career Service and Retirement Certificates Rider. Previously, the certificates were procured via contracts such as small purchase or one-time bid. As of October 1, 2008, the certificates will be procured via Program 878-S, the Government Printing Office (GPO) Placed Term Contract.

Accordingly, the GPO is now accepting rider orders for the OPM Federal Career Service and Retirement Certificates. They are intended to be used with career service and retirement emblems, and will be available in two different sizes: 203 x 254mm and 216 x 279mm (8" x 10" and 8-1/2" x 11") to accommodate either a folder or frame, as requested by agencies. Certificates for 5, 10, and 15-years of service will be embossed in bronze; 20 and 25-year certificates will be embossed in silver; 30, 35, 45, and 50-year certificates will be gold embossed. A sample copy may be obtained by calling Karen Johnson of GPO Agency Strategic Team (AST) 5 on (202) 512-1239.

The estimated rider rate for these certificates is $17.50 per 50 copies or .35 cents each, which applies to single destination, local delivery.

PLEASE NOTE: CERTIFICATES FOR 5 TO 30 YEARS OF SERVICE WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE IN
PACKAGES OF 50. CERTIFICATES FOR 35 TO 50 YEARS OF SERVICE AND RETIREMENT
CERTIFICATES WILL BE AVAILABLE IN UNITS AS SPECIFIED.

Sincerely,
DR. RICARDO GARCIA,
