NAPA Report Validates GPO’s Core Mission

The National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) released their independent study of the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO), Rebooting the Government Printing Office: Keeping America Informed in the Digital Age. The report affirms that “GPO’s core mission of authenticating, preserving, and distributing Federal information remains critically important to American democracy” in the digital age. Recommendations to strengthen the agency’s business model for the future were made. The study was ordered by Congress in 2011.

Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks said, “I especially want to thank the Academy fellows and staff for their thorough review of GPO’s operations and the recommendations they make to strengthen our mission and services.”
