U.S. Launches Beta Version of Govinfo Portal

The Government Publishing Office (GPO), the official publisher of the U.S. government, has launched a beta version of, a government information portal that will eventually replace the Federal Digital System (FDsys).

FDsys offers authentic, digitally signed PDF documents from dozens of different collections of U.S. Federal Government information (Congressional, Presidential, judicial and federal agency materials).

All information currently available on FDsys can be found on govinfo.

According to the GPO:
"govinfo is a redesign of the FDsys public website, with a focus on implementing feedback from users and improving overall search and access to FDsys content. The redesigned, mobile-friendly website incorporates state-of-the-art innovative technologies and includes several new features for an overall enhanced user experience."

"The key new features include:
  • a new modern look and feel,
  • the capability to link related content,
  • two new ways to browse content: alphabetically and by category,
  • a new open-source search engine,
  • enhancements to the search filters, and
  • more options for sharing pages and content on social media."
FDsys and govinfo will run in parallel during a testing and design phase. When everything is working OK, FDsys will be sunset and replaced by govinfo.
