The State of Wisconsin’s Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) requests bids for electronic print-to-mail services at one location for the Wisconsin Retirement System. Approximately 370,000 Statements of Benefits (SOB) are printed, folded, and multiple forms are inserted (variable by SOB) and mailed each year in April. Changes will occur each year with the SOB production processes, and programming must be completed to accommodate these changes. Testing of the SOB design and printing production processing will be required prior to the production of the annual statements. Also, on an ad-hoc daily basis, duplicate statements must be produced.
In addition, miscellaneous print-to-mail services such as ETF Retirement Board’s election ballots may be contracted for at the rates quoted on Attachment 1 Cost Work Sheet. When needed, the contract for Retirement Board’s election ballot print-to-mail services typically runs from early January through the end of March each year
The work must be performed at a location that is within 150 miles of the ETF headquarters location at 801 West Badger Road, Madison, WI 53713. Bidders must provide the location where the work will be performed on Attachment 1 – Cost Worksheet.
