Top 50 GPO Suppliers List for Second Quarter Published

CHAMBERSBURG, PA—July 26, 2011—Federal government printing work, through the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO), to private sector printers continued its fall from FY 2009 and FY 2010 levels in the second quarter of FY2011.

“This is unfortunate, and we are hopeful that the U.S. Government Printing Office will choose to reverse this trend and again rely on private sector printers for the majority of its print work,” said Deborah Snider, senior vice president of e-LYNXX Corp. and president of its Government Print Management division. “In the past, the private sector has printed more than three quarters of federal printing—delivering quality work on time and at a reasonable price.

“That work to the private sector has been reduced to an ever decreasing portion over the past few years, and this is having a negative impact on an industry that is very dependent upon federal government printing. We are hopeful the third quarter might see the beginning of a new trend.”

Second quarter 2011 (April through June) volume was $79 million, compared to $61 million in the first quarter of 2011 and $90 million in the second quarter of 2010.

Work done by the top 50 print suppliers during second quarter was valued at $57 million, vs. $39 million in the first quarter and $63 million for same period of 2010.

Of the more than 1,371 print suppliers that obtained GPO jobs during the second quarter, RR Donnelly won the most work—$17,959,441. Most of this total represents one job, printing the “Medicare and You” publication for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Rounding out the top five GPO suppliers for the quarter were NPC Inc. ($4,924,688), Gateway Press ($4,446,410), Monarch Litho ($3,114,990) and SourceLink ($2,488,361).

To be profitable with GPO, printers must be knowledgeable of the organization’s rules, regulations and procedures, use historical data to analyze opportunities, have or obtain the expertise requisite to bidding to win with the lowest qualified bid, and receive all job postings for which they are qualified to bid. Once a printer fully understands the GPO marketplace, it can expect to increase its profitability from an industry average of 2 percent, before GPO work, to 14 percent or more afterwards. Those percentages are based on a printer working with an experienced GPO bid service firm, identifying open production capacity and offering margin pricing to fill otherwise non-productive, non-revenue generating schedule openings. This is more important than ever as the GPO brings increasing amounts of what use to be procured into its own in-house shop.
