GPO SuDocs Deposit Accounts

A deposit account is a prepaid account established with the Superintendent of Documents (SuDocs) for customers who have a continuing need to purchase Government products.  Once this is set up, the account number can be used for purchasing from the U.S. Government Bookstore in lieu of other payment methods.

Who May Use a Deposit Account? A GPO SuDocs deposit account can be set up for use by an individual, a Federal agency, an organization or a company.

What is the Minimum Deposit? A minimum deposit of $50 is required to open the account.  This amount may be paid by check or money order (payable to the Superintendent of Documents) or by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover/NOVUS, or American Express). All credit card payments must include the account number and expiration date of the credit card.

How Can I Set Up a Deposit Account? A signed, written request to open a Superintendent of Documents Deposit Account, accompanied by payment, may be submitted by mail or fax. Allow three weeks for a new deposit account to be activated.
