Government Printing Office to Reorganize, More businesslike operation

Press release from the issuing company

March 28, 2003 -- (WhatTheyThink.com) -- The Washington Post reported yesterday that the Government Printing Office (GPO) plans a broad reorganization that will transform the agency into a more businesslike operation. It includes for example, a chief operating officer which will free Public Printer, Bruce James, to focus more, he said, on the big picture. Also, the Post said a chief financial officer will tend to the GPO's financial and administrative concerns. A new Office of Innovations and Partnerships will examine the latest technologies from the private sector for use in the agency. "Our goal has been to create an organizational structure that makes sense for the work we're doing today, and that will prepare us to fulfill our customers' requirements in the years to come," said Bruce James. -- For more analysis about the challenges and opportunities for GPO, see WhatTheyThink.com’s special report published on 3/23/03.
