Allowable Costs

Printing

For the purposes of determining allowable costs, OJP defines printing as including and applying to the following:

  • The processes of composition, platemaking, presswork, binding, and microfilm;
  • The equipment classified in Title II of the Government Printing and Binding Regulations, published by the Joint Committee on Printing, Congress of the United States, and used in such processes; and
  • The end items produced by these processes and equipment.

Pursuant to the Government Printing and Binding Regulations, no project may be awarded primarily or substantially for the purpose of having material printed for the awarding agency. The Government Printing and Binding Regulations allow:

  • The issuance of a project for the support of non-Government publications, provided such projects were issued pursuant to an authorization of law, and were not made primarily or substantially for the purpose of having material printed for the awarding agency
  • The publication of findings by recipients/subrecipients within the terms of their project provided such publication is not primarily or substantially for the purpose of having such findings printed for the awarding agency
