For the next five years, the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority will be purchasing printing services from possibly three different printers: Dollar Bill, Green Light Graphics and Print-Tech Inc.
Authorization to use those printing shops was given by the AAATA board at its Aug. 15, 2013 meeting. Even though resolution giving the authorization mentioned smaller print jobs of $3,000 or less, board approval was needed because the total cost was expected to exceed $100,000 for the five-year period. The threshold for required board approval is $100,000.
The Ride Guide, which contains all the routes and schedules, is printed under a separate contract from those authorized under the Aug. 15, 2013 resolution.
This brief was filed from the downtown location of the Ann Arbor District Library at 343 S. Fifth, where the AAATA board holds its meetings. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
