Struggling for Relevance, GPO Goes Digital

“Distributing the budget plan — a total of 8,500 copies of it — is one of the biggest events of the year for the printing office, but it is also becoming something of an anachronism for the 192-year-old organization.

“For most of U.S. history, any government agency that needed to print many copies of a document went to the U.S. Government Printing Office. Now, about half of government documents go straight online, forcing the printing agency to find new ways to make itself relevant in an increasingly paperless world. But questions of security, privacy and authenticity have confronted the GPO leadership as it has sought to get up to date in the digital age.”
