GPO Welcomes New Director of the Office of the Federal Register
Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks welcomes Charley Barth as the director of the National Archives' Office of the Federal Register (OFR). The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) and the National Archives have worked together for more than 75 years to produce the Federal Register, a daily journal of government that provides the public with access to government information and federal regulations. The Federal Register is made available in print and digital formats along with other publications including the Code of Federal Regulations and the Public Papers of the Presidents. Barth brings more than 20 years of records management experience in the federal government to OFR from previous positions at the Department of the Navy and Department of Homeland Security.
"On behalf of GPO, I welcome Charley to his new position as director of OFR and to the long partnership enjoyed between the two agencies," said Vance-Cooks. "I look forward to working with Charley to ensure that we meet the needs of our federal agency customers and the American people."
"The Office of the Federal Register and the Government Printing Office have been in a unique partnership for more than 75 years and I hope to be a part of that partnership expanding the means by which the American people have access to the information they need," Barth said.
