This can mean many things. In large output (blueprints) they scann the blueprint, and once digitized, send it to a digital plotter.

It can also mean printing from COLD storage (you ask for a copy of a cleared bank check) for example.

Oh, that kind! Yes, digital printing on demand. Good for up to about 5,000 copies, than its cheaper to go regular film/litho. Starting at 100 copies, usually. These kind of folks are everywhere. Check the phone book of any major city.

digital direct-to-paper printing is the process of sending a digital image (a file) to the device which creates images on paper (where images may be simple text, or multi-color maps and charts).  The Broad Agency Announcement that you cite as your
source specifies that they are looking for:

"the ability for high speed production of multi-color hardcopy paper maps and charts without the use of film, printing plates and press make-readies".   (i.e. no intermediary physical or
analog system, just direct from the digital information to the
output device.)
