Abstract:

The United States Government Printing Office is at the epicenter of change in the ways humans create and use information to communicate, remain informed, research a topic and preserve a record. We estimate that as many as 50 of all U.S. Government documents are now born digital, published to the Web and will never be printed by the Federal government. Therein lies the biggest challenge for the Government Printing Office. Recently, Congress asked the Government Accountability Office to examine the current state of printing and dissemination of public government information. The study, which is summarized in Appendix A, has proven a very useful guide and benchmark in the preparation of this Strategic Vision for the future of the Government Printing Office. While GPOs mission will remain essentially the same in the future, the introduction of digital technology has changed the ways its products and services will be created and how they will look and function to meet the ever changing needs of the Federal government and the way public users of Government information now prefer it. It is the reorganization of the Government Printing Office to carry out its mission to meet the changing requirements of the Federal government that this document addresses. The Vision To deliver Federal information products and services from a flexible digital platform.
