Preferred Vendor Contracts
A committee has selected ten (10) vendors that will provide Auburn University with print services. These vendors were selected based on a full offering of print services and compliance with current bid law. The ten (10) vendors listed below are considered our “Preferred Vendors” for printing services. The program is effective immediately.
No, Auburn University does not have contracted prices for most print jobs. The only contract we have in place is through Davis Direct for stationery items (envelopes, letterhead, and business cards).
For all print orders other than stationery items, departments will be required to get a least three (3) quotes from three (3) of the ten (10) vendors on this list. Once the quotes have been attained and reviewed, the department must have the lowest-priced vendor for that specific job.
All departments should still consult with the Office of Communications & Marketing and provide the OCM Final Approval to Print form with all printed items.
Yes. Because these vendors have been prequalified and vetted, we know that they all produce quality work.
Transactions that are non-purchase orders and under $5,000 are paid through a vendor voucher payment. Transactions over $5,000 will require a PO# for voucher payments to be processed.
Purchase requisitions over $5,000 must have the following:
- Three (3) quotes attached as backup for the purchase order to be issued.
- OCM Final Approval to Print form provided with the requisition.
- Completed and signed Vendor Disclosure Statement (VDS).
When the invoice is processed to pay the purchase order, the quotes do not have to be attached to the eVendor Voucher but must reference the PO#.

Agreements with Preferred Vendors are evaluated on an annual basis. Therefore, it is very important that we receive input from you regarding the service received from the vendors and the quality of the product produced. Please use the Preferred Vendor Feedback
form to provide positive or negative feedback related to your print order.
