A demora para um anúncio ser veiculado pelo Diário Oficial chegava até 6 meses, sendo o cliente obrigado a acompanhar o jornal diariamente para checar se a sua matéria havia sido publicada. Por esta razão as agências e os corretores autônomos, só autorizavam as publicações para os jornais particulares. A Luz passou então a autorizar também o Diário Oficial, antecipando o pagamento, faturando os anúncios, acompanhando e enviando gratuitamente as folhas das publicações para os clientes. Além disso, começou a enviar os anúncios para o Diário Oficial em clichê, o que reduziu o prazo de publicação para até 3 dias. Este procedimento, trouxe uma grande tranqüilidade para os clientes, que se viam desobrigados a comprar e checar diariamente este jornal, ficando a tarefa totalmente a cargo da agência.
