Migration of the Federal Bulletin Board (FBB)

The migration of the Federal Bulletin Board (FBB) application to a new electronic environment will be initiated on Friday, August 29, 2008. The current URL will take you to the new location of the FBB content, which will appear and function similarly to the current FBB. This enhancement is part of our efforts to update the GPO IT infrastructure and provide better customer service. FBB files will reside on a File Transfer (FTP) server that will provide improved system stability. Over the weekend, users may encounter intermittent access issues. Also, file library links have changed so any direct links to a specific library posted will need to be updated.

The FBB is a free electronic bulletin board service of the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). The service enables Federal agencies to provide self-service access to Federal information in electronic form to the public. Agencies use the FBB as a means to distribute electronic files in various file formats. The FBB is a component of the GPO Access service and provides utility and support files for use with GPO Access online, searchable databases.

As with the current FBB interface, the public will have read access permissions of all material. An FBB account and an FTP client will allow multiple file downloads at once. For those who already have accounts and passwords for the current FBB, these will be valid for the new site. If you cannot remember your username and password, please submit a ticket with askGPO. Please note, a username and password will not be required to simply view individual files and content on the site.
