According to GPO, the agency has reduced its workforce by 74 percent since 1980 through the use of new technologies.
“GPO continues to better position itself to respond to the 21st century digital information needs of Congress, Federal agencies, and the public,” GPO Director Davita Vance-Cooks said, in a release. “Reducing costs and improving efficiency in carrying out our mission of keeping America information are ongoing GPO objectives.”
The last time GPO offered buyouts was in 2011, which led to savings of about $24 million for the agency. GPO said it expects this most recent buyout will save around $7.1 million for the remainder of the fiscal year.
