List of Top 50 GPO Printers Released: Monarch Litho and NPC Lead
Press release from the issuing company
November 3, 2003 -- Commercial printer Monarch Litho returned to the top of the Annual GPO Top 50 Vendors list after a 2 year absence.
Monarch's place on The Top 50 List, released annually by the e-LYNXX Corporation's ABC Advisors division, marked the 4 th time in the past 6 years that the California-based printer has been the GPO's top producer of outsourced work. The list is compiled from data assembled by e-LYNXX and encompasses the Federal Fiscal Year beginning October 1, 2002 and ending September 30, 2003.
Some vendors in the Top 50 obtain volume by winning just a handful of major projects while others win hundreds of small and medium size jobs to produce their volume. All share a common strategy…choosing the right jobs, researching the probable competition and pricing, and bidding actively.
“Successful GPO vendors understand that winning work takes preparation and they also adhere to the old adage ‘you've got to play to win,'” says e-LYNXX Vice President of Customer Relations Deborah Snider. “While some new vendors pop up from time to time on this list, the Top 50 is consistently dotted with firms that put effort into learning about the GPO market, obtaining information, and understanding that they won't win everything”
Snider says that most vendors are extremely pleased to win a quarter of the jobs in which they submit a bid price. The top 15 on this list, in fact, combined to win 23% of the jobs in which they bid.
“GPO is producing a large amount of new jobs to bid each day,” Snider adds, “so you can't fret about a loss because another opportunity lies right around the corner.”
The GPO outsources approximately $400 million of work of all types and sizes to private sector firms each fiscal year. Both individual jobs and term contracts can be obtained to supplement other government and non-government work.
