This is your resource for a variety of some general office administrative functions and resources.

Business Cards

Official LBNL business cards can be printed by the Government Printing Office provided that "artwork" is submitted by LBNL's Creative Services Office. The Division Director (or Designee) will authorize business cards for scientific staff and others who's job is critical to supporting LBNL's and ESD's mission and goals. A project ID is required to recharge the costs which is typically $200. Non-GPO printed business cards are acceptable and are typically printed locally in limited quantities (approximately 24 business cards) by the Division's Illustration team who can also help to prepare artwork.

Reimbursements (Small Dollar Value)

Reimbursements to employees are allowed for costs that are typically of small dollar value.
