Abstract : Budgetary constraints on federal customer agencies continue to present a challenge to CIC. Federal cutbacks in the variety and the quantity of printed publications available, combined with the public's desire for easier and quicker access to information, have spurred CIC to expand and strengthen two important programs. First, CIC has redoubled efforts to identify private sector partners who share federal information goals and can provide resources to stretch limited federal dollars. And secondly, CIC has implemented telephone ordering systems for both the Consumer Information Catalog and its publications. These efforts complement CIC's ongoing efforts to identify and obtain valuable federal information, its media and marketing programs, its centralized distribution system based in Pueblo, Colorado, and its widely acclaimed electronic information activities - all of which combine to make CIC an essential source for citizens desiring unbiased and vital consumer information from their federal government. CIC remains uniquely positioned among federal agencies to perform the services it has so effectively delivered to the American public since 1970.
