The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO)  won the “Stevie Award” for “Organization of the Year” in the Government Agency or Non-profit category at the 8th annual American Business Awards ceremony in New York City, June 21. The American Business Awards honor the achievements and contributions of organizations and executives worldwide.

"It's been an honor to lead GPO's 2,300 employees as we continue to transition from a traditional printing operation to a printing, digital media and secure credentialing facility," says Public Printer Bob Tapella. "This American Business Award is a testament to the great work GPO has been doing for the past 150 years."

The GPO’s CIO, Mike Wash, was named a finalist in the “Information Technology Executive of the Year” category. Wash and his team are credited with launching GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys) and supporting the Obama Administration's open government initiatives. FDsys ensures permanent, public access to official and authentic government information.

The GPO is the federal government's primary centralized resource for gathering, cataloging, producing, providing, authenticating, and preserving published U.S. government information in all its forms. GPO is responsible for the production and distribution of information products and services for all three branches of the federal government.
