David Ferriero, archivist of the U.S., has appointed former Department of Homeland Security official Charley Barth director of the Office of the Federal Register.
The Office of the Federal Register is where citizens can follow executive and legislative actions on either online or print platforms, Barth said in the announcement of his appointment.
Barth will be responsible for providing access to the Federal Register and administering both the Electoral College and the constitutional amendment process.
At DHS, he served as the department’s first lead officer for the Freedom of Information Act/Privacy Act and most recently was director of records for the secretary of the Navy.
His public service career includes time as an information technology contract specialist at the Naval Information Systems Management Center and as a program manager for the Navy’s chief information officer.
The Federal Register is a daily publication containing agency regulations, proposed rules and public notices, executive orders, proclamations and other presidential documents.
The Office of the Federal Register works with the Government Printing Office to publish the Federal Register.
