From Federal News Radio:
Davita Vance-Cooks, who was officially sworn in as the head of the agency last week, says there’s a more accurate moniker for the work the agency does today: Government Publishing Office.
“We want this name change, because we are just much more than a print operation,” Vance-Cooks said in an interview on Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp. “We want it to more accurately reflect the function of what we do today. We produce digital products, utilize digital equipment, embrace digital processes, create digital databases, develop apps — we just do so much more than print. We are a publishing operation.”
The topic of GPO’s proposed name-change was most recently broached during the Senate’s nomination hearing for Vance-Cooks, who had been serving as acting head of the agency since January 2012. in June.
