GPO Awards FedEx Office GPOEXPRESS Program Contract
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) awards FedEx Office the re-competed contract for the GPOExpress program. This is one of the many procurement programs GPO offers to Federal agencies to help with their printing and digital needs. GPOExpress has achieved more than 145,000 orders since the partnership with FedEx Office began in 2005.
GPOExpress provides Federal agencies with discounted services to meet their small and short turnaround printing and binding needs. By enrolling in the program, Federal agency employees receive a GPOExpress card that allows them to take advantage of pre-negotiated prices that are substantially below FedEx Office retail rates. GPOExpress currently has more than 3,000 Federal Government employees enrolled.
The program utilizes the FedEx Office network of more than 1,800 locations nationwide to provide Federal agencies with convenient, low-cost professional services, including printing, binding, and finishing; banner and sign production and direct mail services. The new contract provides cardholders with improved online print ordering and document management tools including a no cost online catalog where documents can be accessed and printed on demand by authorized users.
Some of the Federal Agencies that use GPOExpress:
- Department of Defense
- Department of Transportation
- Department of Interior
- Department of Homeland Security
“GPO continues to find ways for Federal agencies to save money and maximize their resources,” said GPO Director Davita Vance-Cooks. “The GPOExpress program is a good option and one of the many choices GPO provides Federal agencies.”
“FedEx Office is privileged to once again have the opportunity to provide our affordable and professional printing solutions to federal agencies and their programs while offering our expertise and extensive capabilities for their printing and digital content management needs,” said Aimee DiCicco, Senior Vice President of Sales, FedEx Office.
