Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Seattle printing company United Reprographics, LLC was awarded a $71,000 contract to provide reprographic and printing services to CH2M Hill for the City of Seattle Public Utilities’ Combined Sewer Overflow Long-Term Control Plan, Contract # C10-048.
United Reprographics applauds CH2M Hill’s commitment to diversity in selecting a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) as the printing company for the Seattle Public Utilities contract. A global industry leader, CH2M Hill made a conscious decision to keep this printing contract in the Seattle community, helping United Reprographics continue to provide jobs to the local Puget Sound workforce.
When CH2M Hill bid on the Combined Sewer Overflow Long-Term Control Plan, they included United Reprographics in their diversity plan, demonstrating the company’s ability to meet target diversity goals.
United Reprographics President, Michael Barrett, said, “In many cases, if two bidders submit identically priced bids, the company with a clear plan for diversity will have an edge over the competition for government contracts.”
By designating a certified MBE printer as a project vendor in a government contract proposal, contractors will improve their ability to show a commitment to meeting any designated diversity requirements.
