GPO Names New Assistant Public Printer of Operations
Public Printer Bill Boarman has named James C. “Jim” Bradley as Assistant Public Printer of Operations for the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO).
The Assistant Public Printer of Operations is the principal advisor to the Public Printer on the agency’s revenue operations. Bradley will oversee GPO’s Secure & Intelligent Documents, Plant Operations, Official Journals of Government, Customer Services, Agency Accounts & Marketing and Business Products & Services business units. These units are responsible for GPO’s most important products, including U.S. passports, Trusted Traveler Program cards and other secure Federal credentials, the President’s Budget, the daily Congressional Record and Federal Register, and other key congressional and agency information products and services in both digital and tangible formats.
“Jim and I have worked together on GPO issues for more than three decades. His vast knowledge and experience in working with Federal agencies and Congress makes him a natural choice to lead the agency’s revenue generating business units,” said Boarman. “I have every confidence through Jim’s leadership that our relationships with Congress and agency customers and the operation of these business units will be re-energized and thrive.”
Bradley has played an important role in GPO’s operations for more than three decades as member of the agency’s senior management team and as a congressional staffer. Bradley previously served as GPO’s Managing Director of Official Journals of Government, providing liaison for the production in digital and tangible formats of the daily Congressional Record and Federal Register, and processing work for Senate and House bills, reports, hearings, documents and other congressional information products.
He also led GPO’s customer services and printing procurement operations. Bradley came to GPO in 1996 from the Joint Committee on Printing (JCP), where for 14 years he served as a professional staff member and lead technical advisor for the Committee. From 1980 to 1983, Bradley was the Printing Officer for the Department of Energy. From 1971 to 1980, he held a variety of operational and management positions at the Internal Revenue Service, including managing the composition, procurement, and production of business and individual tax forms for nationwide distribution. Bradley holds a B.S. in printing management, with a minor in business administration, from Sam Houston State University.
