GPO renames Congress unit

GPO Access

Continuing efforts to better reflect its increasing use of technology, Government Printing Office officials announced Monday that they have renamed the agency responsible for disseminating congressional information as the Office of Congressional Publishing Services

The former Congressional Printing Management Division still serves as the liaison to Congress for the publication of information, such as the Congressional Record, hearing documents, stationery and reprints. As both the House and Senate rely more on e-government solutions, GPO officials found they also needed to make the transition to digital technology.

The office is now focusing more on print-on-demand capabilities and using traditional and online publishing methods, said Charles Cook, superintendent of the newly renamed office. "We are no longer solely ink-on-paper," he said.

This change follows a decision to shut down all but one of the agency's brick-and-mortar stores around the country and move to an Internet-based publishing source for the public.
