Printing Request Process

Printing Quotes under $40,000:

    Contact MSU Printing and Publications to see if they can meet your printing needs.

    If MSU Printing and Publications is unable to process the order, a contracted printing suppler may be utilized. Printing and Publications will contact contracted vendors for a quote.

    They will then provide the quote to the department. It is the department’s responsibility to create a requisition.

    The requisition must be sent to Procurement Services with all proper approvals.

Printing Quotes over $40,000:

    Procurement Services is required to bid quotes exceeding $40,000 between existing print vendors.

    Follow the same steps for obtaining quotes under $40,000. Once you have the quote, send it and the requisition over to Procurement Services. Please make sure all proper approvals are included.

    Once Procurement Services receives all appropriate documents, they will issue the bid documents.
