WASHINGTON, D.C.-America's private sector printers, through a partnership with the U.S. Government Printing Office, play a vital role in the production of government information products and, in fact, manufacture the majority of such products. Today, the GPO released the top ten printers for the first quarter of calendar year 2005.
"We are very proud of the fact that GPO has one of the most successful and cost-effective procurement programs in the Federal Government. Last year we contracted work out to more than 2,500 printers all over the United States, about 90 percent of our printing needs," said Bruce James, Public Printer of the United States. "The partnership with the printing community ensures the public is getting the information regarding the work of our Government in a timely manner and at the best possible value for the taxpayer."
