Vance-Cooks will be the first woman ever appointed to the position. She has more than 30 years of private sector and government experience and has been chief of staff at GPO since January of this year, according to a GPO release.
She will be acting chief when Boarman leaves his job. Boarman is stepping down as public printer after the Senate adjourned this week without confirming him nomination by President Obama. At issue was the nomination of a member of the GOP to the National Labor Relations Board.
"I don't think it has anything to do with me," Boarman said in an interview with Federal News Radio on Monday.
Vance-Cook will lead a 2,200-employee agency that is undergoing transformation into a paperless society. GPO is responsible for printing the Federal Register and Congressional Record. In the interview with Federal News Radio, Boarman said, "We could see us actually having the Congressional Record as an app. ... All of that will help Congress move to a paperless society."
