R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (RRD) (NYSE:RRD), a leading global provider of multichannel solutions for marketing and business communications, today announced that the U.S. Government Publishing Office awarded RRD a $114 million contract to coordinate and produce 2020 Census printing materials and mailing services. RRD will utilize its leading data, logistics, print and operational platforms to manage one of the largest and most complex communication programs in the world. The program will include more than 600 million documents mailed to more than 130 million households across the United States.

As part of this project, RRD plans to make additional investments in binding, printing and other equipment early in 2019.
