FIELD PRINTING OFFICES STATUS Mr. BENJAMIN. Provide similar information on each of your field locations. On page ii of the Executive Summary of the study performed by Coopers & Lybrand, it is suggested that “most Field Printing Offices have been impacted by loss of work and are operating at reduced workload.” They also state that there is "major uncertainty" over the continued operation of these plants. What is the operational status of each? Do you plan to discontinue operations at any plant during fiscal year 1980? Explain.
[The information follows:] Under the Federal Printing Program, greater reliance is being placed on the private sector than on in-house production in meeting printing requirements. Some of the work previously produced in the field plants is now being purchased. It is therefore necessary to reassess what function the field plants should perform. A study is being conducted under the auspices of the JCP to determine the current and future printing requirements in each geographical area. Following the study, decisions will be made on the future of the field offices.
There is no plan to consolidate any offices in fiscal year 1980.

STATUS OF BOOKSTORES Mr. BENJAMIN. The GPO, through the Superintendent of Documents, operates 26 bookstores. Describe the purpose and operation of each, along with their locations. Please provide a specific breakdown as to the cost of operating each and the revenues generated by each.
[The information follows:)
The purpose of the bookstore program is to make it possible for the broadest segment of U.S. citizens to have direct access to U.S. Government publications. It also enables the general public to have direct contact with employees of GPO who can tell them what documents are available, quote prices, and guide their purchasing of U.S. Government publications from GPO.
Bookstores are located in 19 major cities outside the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, often at the request of congressional delegations. Each store has a staff of three or more employees trained in the use of our reference files and other information guides to U.S. Government documents. The attached Statement of Expenses and Revenues provides the location of each store and its revenues and expenses.
