Plum Book to be available Wednesday

The Government Printing Office has announced that its eagerly awaited “Plum Book,” which lists more than 8,000 federal positions that can be filled by appointment as a new administration takes office, will be available Wednesday from the GPO’s bookstore for $38. The press run will be 2,717 copies. But only 1,000 hard copies are for sale- the rest are given away to members of congress and other officials. (The Plum Book: Washington’s Hottest Read.)


The text also will be posted on gpoaccess.gov and available there at no charge.
