Public Printer Reports Positive Financial Result in GPO's 2011 Annual Report

Public Printer Bill Boarman releases the Annual Report of the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) today. The report details the management actions that generated a positive financial result of $5.6 million in net income for the fiscal year.

During the year, GPO instituted various initiatives to better serve Congress, Federal agency customers, and the public, including:

• An employee buyout that targeted a reduction of 330 positions

• A special taskforce that to date has collected more than $12.5 million in outstanding payments owed by customer agencies

• A GPO survey of congressional offices that allowed them to opt out of receiving printed copies of the documents

• Expansion of GPO’s social media channels by launching GPO’s Facebook page

• The release of GPO’s first mobile Web app

• Development of a strategic vision for the agency and a strategic investment plan to modernize GPO’s technology.

“I truly believe our program of reducing costs while continuing to expand GPO’s critically important information services to the Senate and House of Representatives, as well as Federal agencies and the public, is working and showing real and measurable benefits,” said Public Printer Boarman. “GPO will continue following this path.”
