The United Stales Government Printing Office (GPO) intends to transform itself from an ink on paper printer to a multimedia disseminator of government information products and services. Although the existing federal information policy system is confused and at times contradictory, the GPO has statutory responsibilities to insure the public's access to government information. The approaches, underlying principles, and strategies upon which the GPO will rely for the forthcoming years to transform itself are described. An essential ingredient for successful dissemination of government electronic information will be cooperation among the various stakeholder groups concerned with access to government information.
