Federal Information Centers; Hearings before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Government Operations, House of Representatives, Ninety-Fifth Congress, Second Session.
Congress of the U. S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Government Operations.
These hearings on two bills to authorize the permanent establishment within the General Services Administration of a system of federal information centers were held on May 18 and June 23, 1978. The main purpose of these centers is to provide the public with information about the programs and procedures of the federal government. Statements were heard from managers of existing federal information centers, congressional representatives from Texas and California, an officer of the General Services Administration, an officer of the Office of Management and Budget, and others. An executive summary of the federal information center assessment, completed March 22, 1977 and submitted to the hearing record, summarizes the objectives and role of the center, an analysis of current center operations, options for expansion and upgrading, and recommended choices from these options. Other submissions to the hearing are a map of federal information center and tie-line city locations, memos regarding monitoring of telephone calls, and supporting statements from the General Services Administration and the Library of Congress.
