The Government Publishing Office offers a public display of Printing Procurement Department bid solicitations and makes available single copies of specific solicitations free of charge, upon request, to interested parties at GPO's procurement offices.

In addition to the practice of providing single copies of individual bid solicitations, prepackaged copies of all posted GPO solicitations and abstracts for commercial printing contracts are provided daily on a cost-recovery basis to those persons who are interested in obtaining this comprehensive service.

Under this program, requesters may select the GPO office(s) from which they wish to receive this service. An initial deposit equal to the cost of one month's supply plus the cost of the first month's supply will be required to start the service. Thereafter, the cost per month will be as follows:

The Monthly Fee Applies to Each of the Offices Listed Below:

  • $4,500 All Offices Combined
  • $600 Central Office (Small Purchases Only)
  • $600 Central Office (One-Time and Term Contracts Only)
  • $175 Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, Boston, Virginia Beach, Charleston, New York, San Francisco, Dallas, Denver, or Columbus Regional Offices
  • $75 San Antonio, Oklahoma City, or San Diego Satellite Offices

Charges will be on a monthly basis and will be for a full month only. No prorated charges will be allowed for periods less than one full month. Payments must be made in advance for each month's service or the service will be discontinued, and your initial deposit will be used for any materials made available to you during the month for which payment has not been received. Your deposit will be returned to you in full if you give notice of your intention to cancel the service at least two weeks in advance. All individuals who request this information must make their own arrangements for the receipt of same from the GPO office, or provide a toll-free fax line. Additionally, in response to many requests for more specific information pertaining to GPO's printing procurement program, the following reports/listings are available upon request:
