Newspaper Advertising

1. POLICY
The State of Wisconsin-Department of Administration and UW-Madison have contracts in place with various newspapers. These contracts offer pricing discounts and various methods for ordering advertising. These contracts also offer Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) vendors that can be used for advertising by UW-Madison and other State Agencies. UW-Madison Departments may advertise in publications not covered by this contract, as long as established procurement procedures are followed. (See PPP3).

2. ORDERING AND PAYMENT PROCEDURES: The vendors on the State contract accept various means of ordering and payment. These include suborders placed against Contract Blanket Orders, payments by Purchasing Card, or payment by direct billing. Appendix A lists the methods of ordering/payment by Vendor.

3. SUB-ORDER FORMS: Sub-order forms are used by some of the vendors. Some Vendors require them before accepting orders. These forms are unique to each vendor and should be requested directly from them. Departmental unique sub-order forms may be developed, but must be approved by the Vendor you are dealing with.

4. PUBLICATION DEADLINES: Departments must adhere to each newspaper’s publication schedule. Shorter lead times are subject to approval by the newspaper on a case-by-case basis. Publication deadlines for each newspaper are available by contacting the vendor representative identified. These deadlines may vary from time to time, particularly during holiday periods. You should call ahead to verify deadlines for time-sensitive advertisements.

5. CURRENT RATES: Contact the Vendor’s Representative to obtain current rate cards (advertising rates) to assist in your decision-making.
