Government Printing Office (GPO)

The federal government's primary, centralized resource for gathering, cataloging, providing, authenticating, and preserving published information in all its forms. It maintains a 1.5 million square foot facility in Washington D.C. for processing, printing, and distribution of materials. Unless one knows the specific government agency responsible for particular materials, GPO's Web site, www.gpo.gov, is the best place to start any search regarding laws,regulations,procedures,forms,advice,or virtually anything else prepared by or collected for the U.S.government.
