Procurement Policies and Procedures
Printing and Printing Services Procurements
All printing orders must comply with the South Carolina Consolidated Procurement Code. Unless the item is part of a total program being handled by the Department of Publications and Graphics Services, all requests for forms and specialty items, including reprints, will be forwarded directly to Procurement Services for the bid process and procurement. A completed Forms Specification Sheet must accompany each request.
All requests for printing that do not require planning, writing and editing, design or art preparation will be forwarded directly to Procurement Services along with a completed Printing Specification Sheet for the bid process and procurement.
The Department of Publications and Promotions provides a comprehensive publications and graphics service including planning, writing and editing, design, camera-ready art preparation and production supervision. When creative work cannot be provided in-house, Publications and Promotions works with outside specialists on behalf of campus clients.
If assistance in preparation of printing materials is secured from the Department of Publications and Promotions , this should be accomplished prior to submitting a requisition to Procurement Services for the bid process.
