GPO Submits FY2014 Budget Request

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON - Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Legislative Branch Appropriations on the U.S. Government Printing Office's (GPO) FY 2014 appropriations request. GPO is requesting $128.5 million for FY 2014, which is provided through three separate accounts in the annual Legislative Branch Appropriations bill: 

* The Congressional Printing and Binding Appropriation covers the cost of information products in digital and print formats that GPO produces for Congress. About 70% of this cost is for preparing the electronic files used for both digital access and printing. For FY 2014, GPO is requesting $79.7 million.

* The Salaries and Expenses Appropriation of the Superintendent of Documents primarily covers the cost of the Federal Depository Library Program, which works in partnership with approximately 1,200 libraries nationwide to provide public access to Federal Government information in digital and print formats. For FY 2014, GPO is requesting $35.8 million.

* The GPO Revolving Fund receives appropriated funds for specific technology investment and facility improvements. For FY 2014, GPO is requesting $12.9 million. The request includes funding for the continued development of GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys) to support increased online access to congressional and Federal agency information as well as other digital information technology improvements.
