ELECTRONIC ONLY POSTING OF GPO PRINTING PROCUREMENT SPECIFICATIONS (APRIL - 2014)
As part of GPO's printing procurement procedure, GPO had previously posted paper copies of procurement specifications daily for prospective vendors in our Central Office and Regional Procurement Offices. These specifications have also been posted on-line for free and broad public access.
As a result of the rapid adoption of digital technologies by the printing industry in recent years and in support of the GPO "Go Green" initiatives, GPO will no longer continue to post paper copies of procurement specifications. All procurement specifications will continue to be available online at the web addresses shown below.
Small Purchases are posted on Contractor Connection, on-line small purchase opportunities, Quick Quotes, Open Jobs:
Invitations to Bid and Programs / Term Contracts are posted on FedBizOpps and on GPO’s site Contractor Connections, Bid Opportunities:
To ensure that the needs of the public and our GPO vendor community are met, tangible copies of these specifications will be made available upon request at the Central Office and Regional Procurement offices at no charge.
APPLICABLE TO ALL CONTRACTORS WISHING TO DO BUSINESS WITH THE U.S. GOVERNMENT PUBLISHING OFFICE (GPO)
Every contractor seeking to do business with the GPO must first complete and thereafter maintain the accuracy of its GPO Contractor Connection registration with the following mandatory taxpayer information boxes: "EIN/TIN #" (Employer Identification Number or Taxpayer Identification Number); "Subject to Backup Withholding" (See Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification); and, "Current W-9 Request" (See Form W-9). GPO will withhold payment of any invoices for work completed by any contractor who fails to provide these tax data in GPO Contractor Connection. Such invoices will be declared ineligible for payment until all requirements for payment, including providing these tax data in GPO Contractor Connection, have been satisfied.
