CIRCULAR LETTER NO. 705
October 10, 2008
TO: Printing and Publishing Officials of the Federal Government
SUBJECT: Modifications to GPO Web Links from Federal Agency Sites
Changes to GPO's network and internet delivery methods may cause some "Access Denied" errors on certain GPO Web links. Some internal GPO links that were created using an older, antiquated linking method are now invalid and are producing error messages.
Federal visitors will no longer be permitted to gain access into GPO Headquarters with a Government identification badge not issued by GPO. All visitors entering GPO to conduct business must sign in at the front desk located in the Main Lobby at the 732 North Capitol Street entrance, obtain and display GPO visitor's badge, remain under escort at all times, and return visitor's badge to security personnel at front desk upon departure. GPO Security defines a visitor as anyone who does not have a valid GPO identification badge.
In order to correct the links so that they point to the appropriate GPO resources from Federal agency Web sites, there is a simple course of action for correction.
An example invalid link is provided below:
Within this link there are two servers: the akamaitech.net and gpo.gov. Web administrators will need to remove the akamaitech.net and point back to gpo.gov.
The example URL above should then become:
After this modification is made, the connection to GPO's resource will be restored.
If you have any questions concerning the modification process described in this Circular Letter, please contact email@example.comJohn Braddock.
