Print management is the overarching general term that applies to the management of all agency printing operations, including agency self-service and supplier generated printed material, services, and/or equipment.
Statewide Print Management Strategies Team
Enterprise Services supports a Statewide Print Management Strategies Team that convenes occasionally to further statewide collaboration. This ad-hoc team includes representatives from a variety of state agencies, boards, commissions, and institutions of higher education.

Consolidated Annual Print Management Status Reports
In lovemeber 2021, the Department of Enterprise Services (DES) adopted changes to WAC 200-380 to remove a requirement for state agencies, boards and commissions, and higher education institutions to submit an annual print management strategy report to DES. WAC 200-380 was adopted in 2016 in response to RCW 43.19.742, which aims to improve efficiency and minimize costs associated with agency-based printing.
Reporting to DES was an important aspect of initial implementation, including helping DES identify how to best support agencies’ efforts. Now that initial implementation has occurred, removing the requirement would reduce redundancy and free up state resources better committed to the Legislature’s goals to increase efficiencies and reduce costs. DES remains available to support agencies’ print management efforts.
