To request work from Printing Services, departments should submit
both a "Printing Office Requisition Form" and a sample of the job. 
The Printing Office will provide blank copies of the requisition
form on request; phone number 924-7186.  Upon receipt of a properly
completed requisition and job copy, Printing Services will enter
the request into the production schedule. Every attempt will be
made to meet departmental due-dates.

To request copying or photography, take the job to one of the Copy
Centers listed in Procedure 7-20.

The Customer Service staff of the Printing Office is available to
help develop specifications for work desired, including delivery
date.  It is the responsibility of Customer Service to use both
University and commercial resources to provide the best product
design, delivery date, and cost.  If requested, Printing Services
will assist in obtaining part or all of a job from an appropriate
commercial vendor in strict compliance with State and University

Departments requiring any commercial printing, regardless of the
dollar amount, MUST OBTAIN a Purchase Order from Purchasing and
Materials Services before the University will authorize any related
payments.  Because competitive bids must be taken for commercial
printing, departments should allow at least 15 working days for
printing to begin.  The University Printing Office can assist
departments in this process by:

 Providing most printing, copying, duplicating, and photographic
 needs, or,

 Helping departments obtain Purchase Orders from Purchasing and
 Materials Services by writing technical specifications for the
 Purchase Requisitions.

Once the work is completed, Printing Services will directly charge
the department's account; commercial vendors will normally directly
bill departments.

Personal Printing Requests

The Printing Office will neither produce nor assist in contracting
for personal letterhead or for other personal printing needs. 
However, the Copy Centers will provide personal copying on a cash
and carry basis.
