  News/Media: Keeping America Informed  

Welcome to GPO's Media Kit. Included in the left column are press releases, high resolution images for downloading and a ten minute video chronicling the beginnings of the agency to the digital changes of the future. If you have any questions please feel free to contact a member of the Public Relations Office. Names, numbers and e-mail addresses are located in the right column.

The U.S. Government Printing Office's core mission, Keeping America Informed, dates to 1813 when Congress determined the need to make information regarding the work of the three branches of government available to all Americans. This is the inherent function of government which GPO carries out for Federal agencies on behalf of the public. The GPO is the Federal government's primary centralized resource for gathering, cataloging, producing, providing and preserving published information in all its forms.

Since its inception, GPO has offered Congress, the courts, and government agencies a set of centralized services to enable them to easily and cost effectively produce printed documents according to a uniform set of Federal government specifications. In addition, GPO has offered these publications for sale to the public and made them widely available at no cost through the Federal Depository Library Program.

Today, the GPO is at the epicenter of technological change as it embraces its historic mission while looking to the digital future. The men and women of the GPO are hard at work transforming the agency into a digital information processing facility that will continue Keeping America Informed into the 21st century and beyond.
