WASHINGTON - The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has been named among the most innovative agencies in the Federal Government by the Partnership for Public Service. The agency is rated among the top ten most innovative mid-size agencies based upon the data analysis from the 2013 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government Employee Viewpoint Survey. Federal agencies designated as innovative are said by the Partnership to "excel in fostering innovation." GPO was rated among the top ten best places to work among medium-sized Federal agencies in the original survey.
In the digital age, GPO is turning to a broadening range of solutions to carry out its mission of Keeping America Informed for Congress, Federal agencies, and the public. GPO provides digital access to Government information through apps, eBooks, and the agency's Federal Digital System (FDsys), which today offers one million Government titles that have been retrieved one billion times over the past five years. Bipartisan legislation to change the agency's name to the Government Publishing Office to better reflect the information products and services that GPO provides today was recently reported favorably by the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration.
"GPO's employees are a crucial component of our continuing digital transformation," said Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks. "We continue to seek the most innovative and efficient ways to provide Congress, Federal agencies, and the public with the Government information products and services they need. Speaking for all of us at GPO, we are honored to see that our efforts to improve how we carry out our work have been recognized by the Partnership for Public Service."
