GPO to put historic Treasury docs on FDsys
The Department of the Treasury and the Government Printing Office are partnering on a pilot project to make digitized content from the Treasury’s library available on GPO’s Federal Digital System, also known as FDsys.
Over the next year, additional historical documents within the Treasury’s library collection will be made available on FDsys, including the Official Register of the United States, a publication with information about the federal workforce, including the name of every employee, their job title, state or country of birth, the location of their post and annual salary.
“Treasury is committed to answering President Obama’s call to create a more efficient and effective government through greater transparency, participation, and collaboration,” said Treasury Acting Assistant Secretary for Management Nani Coloretti. “Our partnership with GPO to provide more of Treasury’s valuable library resources online is an exciting next step in fostering a culture of openness when interacting with the public.”
GPO authenticates all documents on FDsys guaranteeing the public that the content is official government information and has not been altered since it was signed and disseminated by GPO. It also works with other federal agencies, including the National Archives and Records Administration, Office of Management and Budget and U.S. Courts, to make their content available on FDsys.
