Final make-ready press sheets will be inspected and approved at the contractor?s plant for the purpose of
establishing specified standards for use during the actual press run. Upon approval of the sheets, contractor
is charged with maintaining those standards throughout the press run (within QATAP tolerances when
applicable) and with discarding all make-ready sheets that preceded approval. See GPO Publication 315.3
(Guidelines for Contractors Holding Press Sheet Inspections) issued January 2015. NOTE: A press sheet
inspection is for the purpose of setting specific standards that are to be maintained throughout the entire
run. It does not constitute a prior approval of the entire run.
Press sheets must contain control bars for each color of ink on the sheet. Control bars must be placed
parallel to the press ink rollers. The control bars (such as BRUNNER, GATF, GRETAG, or RIT) must
show areas consisting of 1/8 x 1/8 minimum solid color patches; tint patches of 25, 50, and 75%; dot gain
scale; slur targets; two-color overprint ink trapping targets and gray balance patches for process color (if
applicable). These areas must be repeated across the entire press sheet.
Viewing Light: Press sheets will be viewed under controlled conditions with 5000 degrees Kelvin overhead
luminaries. The viewing conditions must conform to ISO 3664-2009; a viewing booth under controlled
conditions with 5000 degrees Kelvin overhead luminaries with neutral gray surroundings must be provided.
NOTE: See Contract Clause, paragraph 14(e) (1), Inspections and Tests of GPO Contract Terms (GPO
Publication 310.2, effective December 1, 1987 (Rev. 6-01)). When supplies are not ready at the time
specified by the contractor for inspection, the Contracting Officer may charge to the contractor the
additional cost of the inspection.
To maintain the required quality, the Government reserves the right to inspect the press sheets at the
contractor's plant on any workday during the contractor's regular working hours. When press inspection is
requested, it must be scheduled during contractor's first and/or second shifts ONLY.

MARGINS:
Per artwork provided.
PROOFS:
PROOFS EACH VERSION: *5 high resolution proof sets (as described below), **4 constructed digital
content proofs, 5 stock samples. Ink drawdowns for each pantone for each color version. Low-res PDF file
for all components of all versions to (Jackie McGowan) only.
***5 set(s) of digital one-piece composite laminated halftone proofs on the actual production stock (Kodak
Approval, Polaroid PolaProof, CreoSpectrum, or Fuji Final Proof) with a minimum resolution of 2400 x
2400 dpi.
At contractor?s option, (5) set(s) of inkjet proofs that are G7 profiled and use pigment-based inks may be
submitted in lieu of digital one-piece composite laminated halftone proofs. A proofing RIP that provides an
option for high quality color matching such as Device Links Technology and/or ICC Profiles Technology,
and meets or exceeds industry tolerance to ISO 12647-7 standard for Graphic Technology (as of 2016 and
future amendments) must be utilized. Proofs must be ripped and sent at plate resolution (minimum of 2400
x 2400 dpi). If using a 1 bit tiff, the tiff must be made at a minimum of 2400 dpi. Output must be a
minimum of 2400 x 1200 dpi on a GRACoL or SWOP certified proofing media. Proofs must contain both
of the following to be evaluated for accuracy: 3-tier color control strip: IDEAlliance ISO 12647-7 2013(i1),
and the GPO Resolution target found at: www.gpo.gov/gporestarget.pdf. NOTE: If a contractor chooses
this proof option, prior evaluation and approval of this proofing method must be provided by GPO, Quality
Control for Published Products, to ensure that the final product will be produced in accordance with
contract specifications. See instructions at:
https://www.gpo.gov/docs/default-source/forms-and-standards-files-for-endors/qlsamples6f200c30b44a643
08413ff00001d133d.pdf. Failure to obtain this evaluation and approval may be cause for the job to be
rejected should the final product not match the proofs for color.
Proofs must contain color control bars (such as Brunner, GATF, GRETAG, or RIT) for each color of ink on
the sheet. Control bars must be placed parallel to the press?s ink rollers and must show areas consisting of
minimum 1/8 x 1/8 solid color patches; tint patches of 25, 50 and 75%; dot gain scale; and gray balance
patches for process color (if applicable). These areas must be repeated consecutively across the sheet.
The make and model number of the proofing system utilized shall be furnished with the proofs. These
proofs must contain all elements, be in press configuration, and indicate margins. Proofs will be used for
color match on press. Direct to plate must be used to produce the final product with a minimum of 2400 x
2400 dpi.
Pantone colors may be substituted with a similar color (with the exception of process yellow) but may not
be built out of the four process colors. If producing Inkjet proofs, Pantone colors must be simulated on
proofs and must be proofed separately on a digital color content, overlay, or inkjet proof.
***Digital color content proof shall be used to represent spot varnish.
4 set(s) of digital color content proofs. Direct to plate must be used to produce the final product with a
minimum resolution of 2400 x 2400 dpi.
