GMD will not provide graphics services to students, including graduate students. GMD will not produce graphics materials for any client not employed by the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa or clients not employed by the UH Board of Regents.

Limitations on Services

Since CIS is unable to charge back for materials consumed or other costs incurred in providing services to clients, GMD reserves the right to establish limits on the amount as well as the complexity of work that can be performed for an individual client. This policy will be applied to ensure equitable access by all CIS clients. Additional factors may also limit services available.

Purchases for Outside Services/Buyouts

All buyouts (services purchased from off-campus vendors), such as printing, image setting, film processing, and large mounting, will be the client’s responsibility, i.e., the client’s department must issue the purchase order directly to the vendor. GMD will assist in writing specifications, soliciting prices, and acting as liaison between vendor and client.
