Mike Wash, CIO of the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO), has been honored as “Federal Player of the Week” by The Washington Post and The Partnership for Public Service, with a profile story in The Washington Post.
The article focuses on Mr. Wash’s innovative development of GPO’s FDsys content management system, and his commitment to open government data, including:
- Partnering with Tom Bruce and his team at the Legal Information Institute at Cornell University, and with the Cornell University Law Library, to develop an enhanced, XML-based version of the Code of Federal Regulations;
- Providing free public access to the Federal Register and Code of Federal Regulations in bulk XML; and
- Partnering with the Office of the Federal Register to launch the innovative Federal Register 2.0.
In the article, George Beckerman of Marlin & Associates praises Mr. Wash for “providing an ‘absolutely essential and an extremely valuable’ service for Americans. ‘Mike’s work protects these assets, keeps then fresh, and ensures their continued value,’ Beckerman said.”
Congratulations to Mr. Wash on this well-deserved honor!
