The Government Printing Office and the National Archives’ Office of the Federal Register received an award for their innovation in creating FederalRegister.gov from the Administration Conference of the United States.
GPO and OFR were recognized for FederalRegister.gov, “demonstrating efficiency, enhancing customer service, increasing transparency, and streamlining the regulatory process.” FederalRegister.gov also provides bulk access to the source code of the Federal Register and makes XML data available in bulk, along with an easy-to-use application programming interface so other agencies and non- governmental organizations can make customized versions.
“This award is a testament to the collaboration between GPO and OFR and our joint effort to lead the way in Government innovation,” said Public Printer Bill Boarman. “FederalRegister.gov is an informative Web site and a great tool that Government agencies and the public can use to customize Federal Register content.”
“The Federal Register is honored to receive the prestigious Gellhorn Innovation Award,” said Director of the Federal Register Ray Mosley. “To see the hard work of OFR and GPO staffs recognized with this award by ACUS is especially gratifying. We continue to be inspired to make government better.”
