Outgoing GPO chief appoints first female deputy public printer

Public Printer Bill Boarman appointed Davita Vance-Cooks to serve as deputy public printer, according to a Government Printing Office announcement.

Vance-Cooks is the first woman appointed to the position -- the second highest at the GPO. She has served as Chief of Staff to the Public Printer since January, and has held senior management positions at the GPO for nearly eight years. Some of her accomplishments at GPO include developing the GOP Express program with FedEx, launching an award-winning government book blog, and leading a partnership with Google to make federal e-books available.

No Senate vote, no GPO chief

Public Printer Bill Boarman will step down at the end of the Congressional session after the Senate did not vote to confirm him, according to a statement from the Government Printing Office.

As a recess appointee, Boarman has led the GPO for the last 20 months while waiting for confirmation. In November, two Republican senators dropped the hold on Boarman's nomination, but new objections arose Saturday, according to a Washington Post article. Without confirmation before the end of the year, recess appointees must step down from their posts.
