New Preferred Contracts for Printing Services - Monday, February 8, 2021

Penn Procurement Services is pleased to announce the selection of a new set of Preferred Contract suppliers for Printing and Related Services.

These suppliers were chosen after a rigorous and inclusive Request for Proposal process led by Procurement Services that included:

•             analyzing supplier spend by Penn departments;

•             identifying and inviting qualified local and diverse suppliers to participate;

•             soliciting proposals from 35 companies; and,

•             selecting the suppliers that most closely matched Penn’s requirements.


In earning Preferred Contract Supplier status, these best-in-class suppliers offered pricing, service, and support that will deliver excellent value to the Penn community.  They will offer the Penn community a variety of options for: product selection, distribution, and design consultation. Importantly, each of these companies adheres to recognized sustainable and socially responsible practices, and some are diversity-owned and local businesses.
