There is no charge for the services provided by University Communications. You are only responsible for the cost of any materials created. Before any job can be opened, you must provide a FOAPAL number so that invoices can be appropriately charged. A FOAPAL authorization email with the vendor and estimate will be sent to your budget manager (copying you) showing the estimated cost for the job (such as an ad, brochure, or poster). The FOAPAL authorization email must be approved and returned via email before any job can be produced.
