Description of Services: The mission of the GPO is the production or procurement of printing for Congress and the agencies of the federal government. GPO also disseminates information to the public through the Superintendent of Documents publications, sales, and depository library programs. Through its documents program, GPO disseminates what is possibly the largest volume of informational literature in the world. The Superintendent of Documents offers approximately 17,000 titles to the public at any given time. These are sold principally by mail order and through a series of bookstores across the country.

The GPO is accessible on the World Wide Web at this URL address:

Primary Focus: GPO's primary mandate is to facilitate the printing of Congressional work in an efficient and cost-effective manner. The Congressional Record and Federal Register are printed daily. Although often referred to as the "Nation's largest publisher," the Superintendent of Documents neither initiates nor exercises control over the publications GPO sells. Virtually all government publications are issued by Congress and the various government agencies. GPO prints or procures the printing of these publications and distributes them through its sales and/or depository programs.
