Kinko's and GPO team to give FEMA new printing strategy

Friday, October 20, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Oct 19, 2006 -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency is using GPOExpress to cost-effectively manage communications during response and recovery efforts following a national incident. GPOExpress is a convenience printing program offered through the U.S. Government Printing Office in partnership with FedEx Kinko’s that can be tailored to each agency’s communications needs. Orders are walked-in or electronically transmitted directly from agency offices to FedEx Kinko’s for simultaneous printing and delivery at any of their locations throughout the United States. “FEMA can go directly to any FedEx Kinko's location to fulfill a wide range of printing needs, including copying, binding, distribution, and delivery,” said Jim Bradley, GPO's Managing Director of Customer Services. “This offers more printing resources, closer, sooner, and safely, while remaining committed to disciplined spending and achieving the best value for the American people.” The GPOExpress program, available 24/7, allows agencies to cut through red tape to meet their immediate requirements at pre-negotiated prices that are substantially below retail prices. "By leveraging the significantly discounted prices offered through GPOExpress, FEMA has the potential of saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars each year," said Ken Brown, Manager of FEMA's Printing Office. "Saving on the cost of shipping, GPOExpress allows production to take place locally where the materials are immediately needed, helping our staff meet the needs of communities and disaster victims anywhere across the country."
