GPO/2001: Vision for a New Millennium.
United States Government Printing Office, Washington, DC.
This publication is intended to serve as a strategic guide for the U.S. Government Printing Office in the development of its tactical plans for entry into the next millennium; to provide a glimpse of the future of Government information; and to delineate the changes that lie ahead in how information will be created, replicated, and disseminated. After presenting the GPO mission statement, goals, and key concepts, eight modules are used to define the strategic planning process in terms of goals and activities: (1) Human Resources--determine future needs in recruitment by gathering data on the present workforce and projecting retirement rates; (2) Training--gather data on present training efforts to determine future training needs and retool to meet these needs; (3) Products and Services--determine customer needs for the next decade by analyzing present products and services, and projecting changes in demand; (4) Technology--determine technology needed to meet customer demands by analyzing present equipment and exploring new technology that should be introduced into GPO; (5) Organizational Structure--determine best organizational structure to meet future product and capability needs by analyzing current and past organizational structures, and explore alternatives; (6) Financial Resources--determine resources needed and their availability by analyzing financial strength and resources, and explore alternatives; (7) Facilities--determine proper type, location, and work environment for GPO facilities by analyzing present facilities and explore available alternatives; (8) Legislative Environment--determine legislative changes required and analyze changes needed to accommodate GPO 2001. Each of these goal and activity areas is discussed in detail, and an outline of tactical plans for each area concludes the report. (ALF)
