State Mail & Distribution Services

State Mail & Distribution Services (SMDS) is part of the Utah Division of Purchasing & General Services. SMDS provides mail preparation and distribution services to State agencies, Cities and Special Service Districts between Ogden and Spanish Fork. Services include intelligent inserting, automated inserting, folding, tabbing, address printing, presorting and mail design.

USPS discounts provided to State Agencies through mail automation amount to almost $2 million per year in addition to tremendous labor savings.


US Postal requirements for mail addressing and preparation are always changing. To enable SMDS to continue providing customers with accurate information and efficient services, it is important for our customers to understand some of these requirements and changes. Quarterly Mail User’s Forums, Quarterly Newsletters and On-site training are available to all SMDS customers. If you have questions or would like to arrange a training session for your agency, please call Scott Sutherland at #801-323-4306 or by email at to make arrangements.
