Procurement Vehicles

GPO offers our customer agencies several procurement vehicles to satisfy all of their publishing requirements

GPOExpressSM - allows all U.S. Federal agencies direct access to services at FedEx OfficeSM locations worldwide. Using the new GPOExpressSM Card, agencies will receive significant discounts and benefits on their printing and finishing needs at any store location, at any time.

Simplified Purchase Agreement (SPA) - Individual Work Orders written, procured and administered (in concurrence with GPO) by the customer agency for orders which will not exceed $10,000.

Term Contracts - These are GPO written, procured and administered contracts when repetitive orders are anticipated for a product or service over a period of time. Each contract is supplemented by individual Print Orders which are usually issued to the contractor directly by the Agency.

Single Award - When one vendor can satisfy our customer requirements
Multiple Award - When multiple vendors would be better positioned to meet our customer's requirements

Small Purchases - GPO written, procured through a negotiated contracting process, awarded and administered contracts where the aggregate amount does not exceed $100,000.

One Time Bids - GPO written, procured through a formal bidding process, awarded and administered contracts with no dollar limit.

GPO Online Paper Store - GPO has teamed up with Unisource Worldwide, Inc. to develop the GPO Online Paper Store. All Federal Government organizations can now order environmentally friendly, xerographic copier paper throughout the continental U.S. using a Web-based online system.

GPO Onsite and Consulting Services - This umbrella agreement gives pre-qualified GPO contractors the opportunity to provide consultative and on-site services to all Federal Government agencies. Through these two contracts, GPO customers can access a select few or a multitude of services directly from approved vendors.
