Hot Doc: Treasury Department Data Heading Toward GPO’s FDsys Portal
The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) and the U.S. Department of the Treasury are partnering on a pilot project to make digitized content from the Treasury library available on GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys), a one-stop site to authentic, published government information. Through the pilot project, the Treasury Reporting Rates of Exchange, 1956–2005, which list the exchange rates of foreign currencies based on the dollar, are now available on FDsys.
Over the next year, additional historical documents within the Treasury’s library collection will be made available on FDsys, including the Official Register of the United States: 1829–1861; 1879–1959, a publication with information about the federal workforce, including the names of every employee, their job titles, state or country of birth, the location of their posts, and their annual salaries.
GPO authenticates all documents on FDsys, guaranteeing the public that the content is official government information and has not been altered since it was signed and disseminated by GPO. GPO also works with other federal agencies including the National Archives and Records Administration, the Office of Management and Budget, and the U.S. Courts to make their content available on FDsys.
