GPO Reaches Retrieval Milestone

The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) announced that 1 billion documents have been retrieved (viewed or downloaded) from its Federal Digital System (FDsys), which provides free online access to about 1 million official federal government publications.

The 1-billionth document retrieved was from the Federal Register daily journal. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has the most retrievals, at more than 14 million.

“This is a tremendous achievement for GPO’s digital transformation efforts and establishing FDsys as the trusted source for authentic, published Government information,” says Davita E. Vance-Cooks, public printer of the United States and the GPO’s CEO. “GPO will continue to add content to FDsys making it the most comprehensive information repository serving the information needs of Congress, Federal agencies, and the public.”
