This is the October 21, 2015 hearing "Secure Credentials Issued by the Government Publishing Office," held before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the statement of Government Printing Office (GPO) Director Davita Vance-Cooks: "The GPO has produced the U.S. Passport for the State Department since the 1920's, giving us extensive experience in the important field of secure credentials. More than a decade ago we engineered the development of the e-Passport, which contains multiple physical and digital security features. Since then, we have produced over 100 million e-Passports that are in use by the American public today. […] In conclusion, our secure credentials program is well-established and well-known among Federal agencies that need these products. Our program is an option-a choice-for Federal agencies and we do not require them to use us. However, the agencies that have chosen to use our program are highly satisfied with GPO's product performance, reliability, security, and pricing. Our employees are committed to providing quality products to help secure our borders and protect our government facilities. We are proud of what we do. We do it well. And we are proud to serve. I would like to invite all Members of this Committee-as well as any other Member who may be interested-to visit the GPO and tour our secure credential operation." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Davita Vance-Cooks, Kathleen M. Carroll, James N. Albers, and Michael A. Raponi.
