GPO Implements Digital Printing Tech to Publish Congressional Record

1 min read

The U.S. Government Publishing Office has deployed digital print platforms for the first time to publish the Congressional Record that details House and Senate legislative proceedings.

GPO said Thursday that it used the digital inkjet presses in a move to automate workflow, reduce paper-based waste to 2 percent and provide data in real-time to ensure accountability.

According to GPO, it acquired six of the digital printing systems in November to support its goal of deploying faster and more reliable printing equipment.

“These presses are an investment in GPO’s future and our ability to provide exceptional customer service,” said Hugh Nathanial Halpern, director of GPO. “They vastly enhance our flexibility to meet our customers’ needs for both large and small jobs.”

GPO handles the publication and dissemination of federal government documentation, including official Congress and White House publications. The office also publishes U.S. passports for the State Department.
