UF Certified Print Vendor Announcement
Matthew Fajack, CFO
The University of Florida has issued a multiple award for Commercial Printing (ITN09LD-105) to a select group of vendors. This award was based on quality, capabilities, service, and sustainability practices and recognized thirteen vendors that meet unique needs for the University.
The Think Before You Ink! website for Printer Certification has a list of these certified vendors, with contact information, vendor equipment lists, FAQs and on-line forms for requesting quotes. In addition, service level expectations for Certified Printers and a Vendor Performance Report is also available.
The following quote requirements should be followed under this program:
Print jobs of $1,000 – $4,999, minimum of one written or electronic quote from the certified printer list is required. Best practices are two quotes.
Printing jobs of $5,000 – $74,999, require two or more written or electronic quotes from the certified printer list.
Printing jobs of $75,000 and above require a formal solicitation process through Purchasing Services.
Vendors not on the certified printer list can still quote on printing, but two quotes from the pool of certified vendors are required, in addition to the outside printer’s quote.
