Congressionally Mandated Reports

A Guide for Federal Agencies to Comply with the Access to Congressionally Mandated Reports Act

Federal agencies must now electronically submit congressionally mandated reports after first submitting to Congress or any required committee or subcommittee of Congress through existing processes. The reports are published and made available to the public on GPO’s online system of access, GovInfo.

Following submission by hard copy to either House of Congress or to any congressional committee or subcommittee, Federal agencies are required, no earlier than 30 days but no later than 60 days, to submit their congressionally mandated reports to GPO for publication in GovInfo, with limited exceptions.
