GPO picks second-in-command

James Bradley

James C. "Jim" Bradley, a longtime leader at the Government Printing Office, has been named deputy public printer.

Bradley has served as assistant public printer for operations and as head of the Official Journals of Government unit, which helps produce the Congressional Record, the Federal Register and other key GPO products. In his new post, Bradley will lead marketing operations at GPO, overseeing printing plants, sales, and products including the Congressional Record, passports and other federal identification credentials.

Davita Vance-Cooks, public printer and head of the GPO, said, "Jim's experience in federal printing and information policy issues is unrivaled. He is a natural leader with a proven record of success in managing GPO's operations to meet the critical needs of Congress and federal agencies. He is especially well-qualified to pursue the changes necessitated by the recent recommendations of the National Academy of Public Administration and he will keep GPO moving forward in this digital era."

Before joining GPO in 1998, Bradley served as a staff member on the Joint Committee on Printing, a bicameral Congressional panel charged with oversight of the GPO.

Bradley's appointment comes at a time of flux for the agency. In her confirmation hearing and in comments on the radio show "Federal Drive," Vance-Cooks spoke of her desire to rebrand the agency as the Government Publishing Office, a nod to how much of the agency's efforts are focused on digital documents, databases and mobile applications.
