Submitting NIMAS files to the NIMAC

Under IDEA 2004, publishers of K-12 instructional materials are required to produce and submit NIMAS files to the NIMAC when customers include this requirement in the language of their print book purchase agreements and adoption contracts. Publishers are also welcome to submit NIMAS files to the NIMAC voluntarily or in anticipation of such contracts. For more information on how publishers work with the NIMAC, check out our FAQ!
