Printing Delegation


Items listed in Amendment 54 to the Constitution of the State of Arkansas are subject to special bidding requirements. The State’s definition of printing is "the process of transferring images, by use of standard industrial type printer ink, upon paper documents such as letterhead, envelopes, pamphlets, booklets and forms." (wet ink on paper versus dry ink which is toner used by digital copiers.)

The UADA Print Shop should be the first stop in receiving a quote on all print jobs. All commodities subject to Amendment 54 that are not available from the UADA Print Shop, State Contract or other State Agencies must be bid by our Procurement staff or the Office of State Purchasing (OSP). Departments are not permitted to take their own bids on constitutional items regardless of dollar amount.

Any Printing job over the $100,000.00 delegation limit must be bid by OSP.  Submit these bid requests to our Procurement staff for submission to OSP.
