GENERAL:       The Department of Health and Family Services, Division of Public Health is accepting bids to purchase
               MICR Paper Check Stock to be utilized by the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women,
               Infants and Children (herein referred to as “WIC”) at local project locations.

               The WIC program provides specific nutritious foods to pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women,
               infants, and children to five years of age who are determined to be "at nutritional risk" by competent health
               professionals. The Wisconsin WIC Program serves approximately 106,000 participants per month
               through 69 local WIC projects serving all Wisconsin counties. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) of
               the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides funds to the Wisconsin Department of Health and
               Family Services (DHFS), for food benefits, nutrition services, and administration of the Program.
               The DHFS/DPH enters into agreements with local health and human service agencies to provide eligibility
               determination and nutrition education counseling to WIC participants, and to issue negotiable food
               instruments that are redeemable through authorized WIC vendors (retail grocers, pharmacies, and special
               vendors).
               The WIC Program currently uses Food Instrument (check) stock at local projects to issue benefits to
               participants. The checks/benefits are printed with Standard Register MICR printers. This Food
               Instrument stock requested for bid will need to be 8 ½” X 11” secure paper holding 3 checks per sheet
               with perforations so that the individual checks can be separated.

               The WIC Program will use the current version of its pre-printed (pre-printed meaning that there is a
               background color, but no actual printing on the check stock). Bids should include the cost associated with
               the “physical” check stock, as well as costs to pre-print the stock to match the check layout that is
               currently used. A paper copy of the current check stock design MUST be requested by bidders, and
               should be used to create “mock-ups” of the various samples of check stock that will be submitted
               for this bid.
               Bids must also include the cost of shipping the stock to local agencies. It is estimated that the WIC
               Program will utilize approximately 300,000 individual checks per month.
               Proposers must guarantee in writing that the FI stock (pre-printed) proposed will work with
               Lexmark/Standard Register MICR printers, and that the proposer will work with our banking contractor and
               software vendor to assure approval of the check stock design before the contract is fulfilled. This will
               include design of the checks, guarantee of the MICR lines printed on the checks, and OCR recognition of
               the checks at the bank.

               All correspondence regarding this bid must refer to #DCJ7001 After an award is made any
               correspondence, documents, price lists, etc., concerning this contract must include this bid number and
               must be sent to this office to be acknowledged.

QUALITY:       Excellent quality including exact color match and exact register is required throughout the finished

PRINTING         BASE FORM
PROCESS:
                 All printing is to be done by the film lithographic or CTP process.

                 Color is to be printed in Purple PMS 266 or equivalent, screened at between 12-15% (depending on
                 proof). Background ink color must match current check stock pattern exactly. Ink must be heat
                 resistant and compatible with MICR printers. Ink must run uniformly (no mottling or light spots).

                 Iridescent pantograph –The pantograph design shall consist of multidirectional images virtually invisible
                 to the naked eye and providing the latest technology in copy-void deterrence to reproduction on color
                 copiers resulting in the appearance of the word “void” in multiple locations in the pantograph.
                 Additionally, the pantograph drops out when processed through image processing systems thereby
                 enabling archiving of critical data only and reduced data storage costs.

                 Laminated color proof required, this proof must match the color ink on press.

PAPER:           Recycled paper shall meet the definitions and minimum content recommendations in the federal Paper
                 Products EPP Executive Order #12873, issued October 20, 1993. The minimum content requirement
                 for this bid is 30% postconsumer recovered materials. Bidders must supply a "mill certification" from the
                 paper manufacturer confirming recycled content, this must be submitted with invoice.

                 1. 24# white recycled Controlled Security Paper that incorporates security features, is manufactured
                    under tightly controlled security conditions, and is unavailable for general sale to the public.

                    chemicals commonly used for chemical alteration so that attempts to alter will result in visible stains
                    through the sheet – chlorine bleach, polar solvents, non-polar solvents, acids and alkalis.

                 3. At a minimum, the face surface of the paper shall be fully coated or fully treated so that laser printed
                    images will anchor securely to the paper fibers thereby deterring the mechanical removal of toner
                    data via tape lifting, scraping, etc. This fusion agent must not retard or impede the chemical
                    sensitization contained in the paper.

                 4. The 8 ½ “ X 11” sheets will contain 3 (pre-printed) checks per sheet, with laser perforations between
                    each check, so that checks can be easily separated after printing.

                 5. An artificial watermark will must be present across the back of the paper stock.


STORAGE:         The successful bidder will store/warehouse the preprinted check stock until an order is initiated by the

               CARTON SEAL

                                                              6
                Cartons are to be sealed top and bottom and, up to 4 inches down the sides, with a 2-ply security tape
                with a customer printed, ballpoint ink receptive, non-smear surface other band which, if removal is
                attempted, will result in the activation of a “blind” message indicating that an attempt to open the sealed
                carton has occurred.

                The activation of the seal reveals the formerly “blind” message in two forms: 1) a permanent, residual solid
                type remaining on the carton, while (2) the back of the outer band reveals the same message in open-face
                type. Once message activation has occurred the seals cannot be reassembled to hide intrusion. The
                outer band will be printed with a cautionary phrase plus an area for the date, signature and the sequential
                document numbers involved. The residual message shall be a notice of intrusion such as, “If seal is
                broken, tampering may have occurred.”



                CARTON LABELING (apply to front of each carton) include:

                1.        Agency Order Number
                2.        Agency mailing address


                FACILITY SECURITY FOR DURATION OF THE CONTRACT

                     2.      All waste is shredded and each piece should be no wider than 3/8” inch and should be crimped.
                     3.      Separate secured areas are utilized for pre-press, production, warehousing and shipping.
                     4.      External access to the facility and internal access to secured areas can only be accomplished by
                             authorized persons with swipe cards and individual PIN’s.


INVOICING:           Printer will invoice the State of Wisconsin WIC Program. The invoice must be itemized to include all
                     applicable costs ( i.e. forms cost, shipping costs, storage costs) and must include mill certification of
                     paper from the paper manufacturer confirming recycled content.

ORDERING:            Vendor must provide a method for ordering check stock that allows users to request the check stock on

                     and by project, warehousing and distribution and financial systems.
                     It is hoped that successful vendor will have a secure Internet site with role-based security in place for
                     local and State Office personnel to facilitate ordering, shipment tracking, quantity tracking information,
                     and costs.

    delivered within this tolerance.

    Unavoidable Emergencies: The contractor will be excused for delays due to uncontrollable causes, such as natural disasters,
    national emergencies, strikes, or fires. Production problems are not considered unavoidable emergencies. The contractor must
    notify the ordering agency, in writing, of such developments immediately, stating the reason, justification, and estimated extent of
    the delay. Under these conditions the state may, in its sole discretion, purchase from other sources until the situa tion is remedied
    and the state is notified in writing.

    Guaranteed Delivery: Failure of the contractor to adhere to delivery schedules as specified or to promptly replace rejected
    materials shall render the contractor liable for all costs in excess of the contract price when alternate procurement is necessary.
    Excess costs shall include the administrative costs.


10. INVOICING AND PAYMENTS: A separate invoice for each order must be sent directly to the ordering agency promptly after the
    job is delivered. Invoices presented for payment must be submitted in accordance with instructions contained on the purchase
    order, including reference to purchase order number and submittal to the correct address for processing. Invoices will not be
    dated as received or processed for payment until all accompanying items required are received by the state.

    been delivered and accepted as specified.

    Auditing: Invoices are approved for payment only if they comply with bid, specifications, order, and sample. Adjustments to
    invoice amounts are made as follows:

    Unauthorized charges for tax or pre-paid freight included in bid pricing may be corrected and paid with no prior notification to
    vendor; a copy of the corrected invoice will be sent to the contractor with payment. The contractor will credit these charge s from
    the state account promptly. All other credit requests will be accomplished according to agency accounting practices,
    accompanied by a good faith dispute. A good faith dispute creates an exception to prompt payment.

    Overtime: No compensation for overtime will be allowed for the contractor's failure to meet normal production requirements.
    Overtime may be allowed to meet unusual requirements when authorized by the state.

    Taxes: The State of Wisconsin and its agencies are exempt from federal tax and Wisconsin state and local taxes except for
    Wisconsin excise or occupation tax on specific controlled commodities which do not include printing. The State of Wisconsin may
    be subject to another state's taxes depending upon the laws of the state from which the purchase is made. The state's federa l
    registration number is 39-73-1021-K. State sales tax exemption numbers may be requested of individual agencies.

    11. REMEDIES AND DAMAGES: When a contractor fails to comply with contract requirements, when a delivered item is
    improperly produced or otherwise not to specifications, or when time is of the essence and there is insufficient time to reprint, the
    contractor may be assessed damages for any order or part of an order that is overdue or defective. A late delivery charge in an
    amount not more than five percent (5%) per day of the net due printer for each working day the contractor is late may be charged
    to the contractor. The late delivery fee may be deducted from any payments due the contractor.

    Contractors whose default has caused additional expense to the agency may be assessed liquidated damages to compensate the
    agency for actual damages incurred.

    In addition to the provisions stated above, in the event contractor shall default in any of the covenants, agreements, commitments,
    terms or conditions herein contained, the state shall have all other rights and remedies which it may have at law or in equity
    against contractor.

    No failure to exercise and no delay in exercising any right, power or remedy hereunder on the part of the state or contractor shall
    operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or remedy preclude any other or further
    exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy. No express waiver shall affect any event or default other
    than the event or default specified in such waiver, and any such waiver, to be effective, must be in writing and shall be operative
    only for the time and to the extent expressly provided by the state or contractor therein. A waiver of any covenant, term or
    condition contained herein shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same covenant, term or condition.

    No remedy or election hereunder shall be deemed exclusive but shall, wherever possible, be cumulative with all other remedies at
    law or in equity.

         contracting state agency for approval. Instructions on preparing the plan and technical assistance regarding this clause are

                       DESIGNATION OF CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION


The attached material submitted in response to Bid/Proposal #                                includes proprietary and confidential
information which qualifies as a trade secret, as provided in s. 19.36(5), Wis. Stats., or is otherwise material that can be kept
confidential under the Wisconsin Open Records Law. As such, we ask that certain pages, as indicated below, of this
bid/proposal response be treated as confidential material and not be released without our written approval.

Prices always become public information when bids/proposals are opened, and therefore cannot be kept
confidential.

follows: "Trade secret" means information, including a formula, pattern, compilation, program, device, method, technique or
process to which all of the following apply:
