18.63  Approval required for printing.

A department or commission of state located in Polk county shall not expend moneys for the publication or distribution of books, pamphlets, or reports unless the publication is expressly required by law or approved by the director. The state printing administrator may exempt minimal single printing projects from the requirements of this section in order to permit a state agency to timely procure printing, if a state contract is not currently available. The department shall adopt rules establishing criteria for exemption of minimal printing projects under this section.

The director may establish a central sales and distribution center from which shall be distributed all books, pamphlets, documents, reports and publications not required by law to be otherwise distributed. The director shall from time to time establish the cost of printing and distribution or mailing each book, pamphlet, report, document and publication. The director shall, thereafter, cause to be delivered, sent, or mailed to anyone requesting a book, pamphlet, report, document, or publication upon receipt of the cost thereof plus distribution or mailing charges. Anyone may examine a copy of any book, pamphlet, document, report or publication at the central sales and distribution center.
