The Consumer Information Center was established in 1970 as an independent office within the General Services Aministration (GSA) to make available to the public a wide variety of consumer-related product information accumulated by the Federal Government as a result of its procurement and use of the products. The Center: determines what publications interest the public, obtains publications from Federal agencies to meet consumer interest, prints and distributes a list of these publications in its Consumer Information Catalog, and informs the public that the information is available.
