Print Management Solutions

GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) 36 is capable of satisfying a variety of print management product and services requirements but also very stringent security requirements.

Schedule 36 offers digital and engineering copiers and multi-function devices capable of printing, scanning and facsimile functions, along with maintenance agreements, repair agreements, and consumable supplies. The financing options include purchase, lease or rental.

When staffing is short and budgets are tight, consider procuring Managed Print Services (MPS) which can help your agency gain control of your printing devices, reduce printing costs, and free up resources to focus on core mission activities.
