The Government Printing Office is looking for ideas from private-sector vendors for services for its sales program operations, GPO officials said.
"Our goal is to increase public awareness of government publications by making them available in a commercial mainstream setting, expand distribution channels and use the latest technology while achieving significant cost reductions," said Bruce James, the public printer.
GPO wants suggestions from vendors regarding a new model for the publications sales operations on a revenue-sharing basis. In 2004, GPO's sales program had gross revenue of about $25 million.
