Consumer Information Catalog
The Federal Citizen Information Center (FCIC) was established to help Federal agencies and departments develop, promote, and distribute useful consumer information to the public. One of the ways they do this is by publishing a new Consumer Information Catalog four times a year. Each quarter, they search out the best new consumer publications and review those already listed in the Catalog for accuracy. Please be assured that FCIC does not share or sell any information obtained from you with any other organization. See the full text of these publications and more at www.pueblo.gsa.gov
