How Do I Buy...

Description:

ISU maintains a pricing agreement for classified advertisements with the Des Moines Register that departments can use to place ads using their procurement card. ISU no longer maintains an open contract purchase order for display ads. Requests for display advertising, which generally exceed the limits for the p-card, should be sent to the Procurement Services department on a requisition.

The ISU Procurement Card is the preferred method of payment for classified ads unless they exceed your p-card limit.

For advertisements that will display the ISU logo, symbols, institutional names, or other identifying marks, please refer to the trademark management policy. For further questions on trademark policy, contact Leesha Zimmerman at 294-4402.

ISU currently has a contract with the following:

Zimmerman, Laurent & Richardson - Advertising Agency Services
