Government Documents: GPO Releases FY2014 Strategic Plan

From the U.S. Government Printing Office:

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has released its Strategic Plan for FY 2014-FY 2018, focusing on the agency’s transformation from a print-centric to a content-centric operation. The plan stresses GPO’s efforts to provide an expanding array of official, digital, secure publishing services to meet the changing information needs of Congress, Federal agencies, and the public. In an environment dominated by constantly evolving technology, rapidly changing stakeholder expectations, and an ongoing shift to digital content via multiple formats and devices, GPO will strive to do more with less, offering new and innovative ways to meet product and service requirements. GPO has also released its FY 2013 Strategic Plan Accomplishments Report, detailing the ways GPO achieved its goals and satisfied its stakeholders.

For FY 2014, GPO is focusing on the following initiatives, all within an environment of continuing fiscal constraint, with costs closely monitored and controlled:

  • Conducting a satisfaction survey of Federal agency customers, the first since 2011
  • Developing the next generation of GPO’s Federal Digital System
  • Upgrading GPO’s plant with new, more flexible and efficient equipment
  • Preparing for the next generation passport
  • Improving the efficiency of GPO’s IT infrastructure
  • Releasing the findings and recommendations of the Federal Depository Library Program Forecast Study
  • Continuing the workplace improvements that led to employees in 2013 naming GPO one of the best places to work in the Federal Government.
