TO: Printing and Publishing Officials of the Federal Government

SUBJECT: Rider Orders for the United States Government Manual, 2011 Edition, Revised May, 2011

The GPO is providing this Circular Letter to announce the opportunity to submit orders for the United States Government Manual, 2011 edition, revised May 2011. The Government Manual provides comprehensive information on the agencies of the Legislative, Judicial, and Executive Branches. It also includes information on quasi-official agencies; international organizations in which the United States participates; and Federal boards, commissions, and committees.

All requisitions (SF-1’s) for the above product are due to the Government Printing Office (GPO) no later than July 22, 2011. Be sure to indicate the number of copies needed for all of the activities in your organization and the GPO Jacket number 223-978. Unlike previous editions of the Manual, this edition and subsequent editions will not be automatically distributed by the National Archives and Records Administration through the Office of the Federal Register. If you wish to receive a copy of this publication it must be ordered through the Government Printing Office.

The estimated rider rate for the 2011 edition printed publication is $13.50 per copy.  Please note that GPO will make every effort to include any orders (SF-1’s) received after the July 26th deadline in the original printing at the rider rate pricing. However, due to the Government Manual production process and schedule, orders received late may be directed to the Superintendent of Documents for fulfillment at the higher post-production sales rates.

Rider rates apply to single destination, local delivery orders only. Mailing costs, if incurred, will be included as an additional charge. Field or regional activities should coordinate their requirements with their Washington, DC area headquarters’ printing officers before submitting any paperwork.

Your requisition should be forwarded to Official Journals of Government, OFR Publishing Services, Stop: OJG, Room A842, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC, 20401, or fax to 1.888.579.5907, attn: US Government Manual. If you have questions concerning the information contained in this Circular Letter, please contact OFR Publishing Services 202.512.2100.
