SF-1 — Line of Accounting
Please read before downloading and submitting the SF-1
The SF-1 (Printing and Binding Requisition) is the basic form used to requisition printing, binding, and related services from the GPO. It is required (1) to request individual (one-time) printing requirements; (2) to request the establishment or renewal of a term contract; (3) to place work on general usage term contracts; and (4) to establish a SPA.
Important information: The Line of Accounting (LOA) is an identification code assigned by the customer agency doing business with GPO. It provides reference information to the agency’s original obligating document and is used to verify that billings are properly charged. The LOA is a variable length, alpha-numeric code.
The agencies listed below require an LOA or other accounting information in order to properly process their billings. If you are submitting an SF-1 on behalf of one of these agencies, the LOA or other accounting information MUST be included on the SF-1. Please enter this information in the field “Line of Accounting/Document Reference Number.” Information entered in this field will appear on the IPAC statement. In addition, please include your email address and phone number (commercial) in the “Additional Information” field at the bottom of the form. Incomplete data may delay processing your request.
Some agencies require two Lines of Accounting. If your agency is one of those, enter the second LOA in the “Additional Information” field on the SF-1.
