Archivist names new director of the Office of the Federal Register

Charley Barth has been tapped to lead the National Archives' Office of the Federal Register, the daily federal journal that provides citizens access to government information and regulations. Barth has more than 20 years of records management experience in the federal government. Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero made the appointment.

 “I am pleased to welcome Charley as Director of the Federal Register," Ferriero said in announcing the appointment. "He has the leadership qualities needed to guide the Federal Register—extensive and proven records management knowledge and experience.”

Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks also welcomed Barth to his new role, speaking on behalf of the Government Printing Office, which works in partnership with the National Archives to publish the Federal Register.

"I look forward to working with Charley to ensure that we meet the needs of our federal agency customers and the American people," she said.

Prior to his current position, Barth served as director of FOIA and Privacy Act at the Homeland Security Department and before that, as program manager for the chief information officer and contract specialist at the Navy. His public service began as a congressional intern for Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.).

One of Barth’s new focus areas as director will be to continue developing electronic publishing and access to the Federal Register and related information products.
