Accessing Shipping List Files on FDLP.gov

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has been posting shipping list files to FDLP.gov and its predecessor sites for many years. The file formats posted are .PDF (an exact replica of the shipping list) and a companion .DBF file, which contains, in table format, the data fields of the shipping list (the .DBF table column names are CLASSNO, TITLE, ITEMNO, LISTNO, and LISTDATE).

Starting January 5, 2015, GPO will change from posting files in .DBF (DataBase File) format to .CSV (Comma-Separated Values) format because .CSV is a more widely-supported format. The previously-posted files in .DBF format will not be changed, and the .PDF files will continue to be posted.

Shipping list files for the current and previous fiscal year are available, as well as historic shipping list files.

NOTE: United States Geological Survey (USGS) shipping list files are also posted in Microsoft Word (.DOC) format (as received from USGS) by calendar year. This practice will continue.
