2013 PKI vs Non-PKI Submission Statistics

We just updated the Tutorials, History, and Statistics page on this site to include some simple statistics on 2013 Federal agency submission to the OFR!

The Office of the Federal Register is equipped to accept digital submission of Federal Register documents using PKI technology.  As you can see, more and more agencies are migrating to this approach as there is a potential cost savings to the agency as well as a significant reduction in the use of physical paper.  The Office of the Federal Register encourages all agencies to use the digital submission process.
