United States Government Manual 2011
National Archives and Records Administration, Office of the Federal Register
As the official handbook of the Federal Government, the United States Government Manual is the best source of information on the activities, functions, organization, and principal officials of the agencies of the Legislative, Judicial, and Executive branches. It also includes information on quasi-official agencies and international organizations in which the United States participates.
Particularly helpful for those interested in where to go and who to contact about a subject of concern is each agency’s “Sources of Information” section, which provides addresses and telephone numbers for use in obtaining specifics on consumer activities, contracts and grants, employment, publications and films, and many other areas of citizen interest. The Manual also includes a comprehensive name index for key agency officials.
Of significant interest is the History of Agency Organizational Changes, which lists the agencies and functions of the Federal Government abolished, transferred, or renamed subsequent to March 4, 1933.
The Manual is published by the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration.
