BPA Print Management Services – GS-03F-PM008

Under the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI), the General Services Administration (GSA) awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to CTI to offer Print Management Solutions under Functional Area II. The BPA is under Schedule 36, Office Imaging and Document Solutions. The FSSI BPA streamlines the acquisition of print devices and leverages the federal government’s buying power by consolidating requirements for a government wide vehicle.

  • Device Plus Service Solutions & Customizable Solutions: Device Plus Service Solutions & Customizable Solutions: These offerings are for document imaging solutions complete with devices, maintenance and repairs, consumables (excluding paper), and usage reporting, including energy usage. Equipment includes a wide range of printers, copiers, and multi-function devices that meet all federal security and sustainability requirements with the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

These options are included under CLIN 2, CLIN3, and CLIN4.

Some of the other benefits an Agency will gain are:

  • Consolidation of print devices, consumables, and all related services to increase management visibility and control
  • Collection and analysis of print usage data to identify savings from improving print management behaviors
  • Flexibility in applying these improvements to specific locations or across entire bureaus and agencies
  • Meet sustainability goals mandated by Executive Orders 13423 and 13514

As part of the CTI Print Management Solution, CTI helps federal agencies implement the "PrintWise" GSA program to change the print behavior. The following are some of the recommendations proposed to agencies to reduce printing costs and sustainability benefits:

  • Default use of ‘duplex’ (double-sided) printing
  • Default use of ‘black and white’ printing
  • Default use of ‘draft’ quality (rather than ‘high’ quality) printing
  • Improved use of sleep mode
  • Default use of toner-efficient fonts
  • Removal of personal printers
  • Freeze purchases of personal printers
