GPO’s Print Procurement Program Helps Local Economies in FY 2017

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

Press release from the issuing company

Washington – The U.S. Government Publishing Office’s (GPO) print procurement program awarded nearly $340 million in contracts to private sector printing companies across the country to meet the printing/publishing needs of Federal agencies in fiscal year 2017.  Nearly 75% of all printing ordered by Federal agencies from GPO is performed by private sector firms working under contract with the agency. GPO typically awards contracts to 2,500-3,000 printing contractors a year on a purely competitive basis. Nearly 10,000 companies are registered to do business with the agency, using GPO as their one-stop shop for print contract opportunities. 

GPO's top ten contractors for FY 2017:

NPC INC.                                   $30.2 million

LSC COMMUNICATIONS              $24.4 million

XEROX                                      $17.1 million

MONARCH LITHO, INC.               $9.4 million

GATEWAY PRESS, INC.                $7.1 million

FEDEX OFFICE (GPOEXPRESS)     $7.0 million

PINNACLE DATA SYSTEMS           $7.0 million


GRAY GRAPHICS CORP.               $5.4 million

RICOH USA INC.                         $5.2 million

“GPO’s partnership with the private sector printing industry continues to generate huge savings for the American taxpayer and creates thousands of jobs nationwide,” said GPO Acting Director Jim Bradley.

Studies by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Joint Committee on Printing have shown that the most cost-effective use of Federal agency printing dollars is through GPO's partnership with the private sector printing and information product industry. Federal agencies realize significant savings by using GPO, as compared to producing printing themselves. In addition, when agencies use GPO, their information products are made available to the public through GPO's Federal Depository Library and Publications and Information Sales programs.
