The News/Media Alliance submitted follow-up comments on October 16 to the Postal Regulatory Commission requesting that they reject the Postal Service’s Flats plan submitted on October 6, which was a requirement of the Postal Service Reform Act (PSRA) of 2022. As submitted, the Plan lacks the comprehensiveness, metrics, and accountability needed to remedy the well-established Flats inefficiencies.
The Alliance urges the Commission to 1) address deficiencies in the Postal Service Flats Plan Pursuant to Section 206 of the PSRA, which falls short of the comprehensive plan to control Flats costs that Congress intended; and 2) highlight that the Service’s Flats Plan fails to include measurable metrics to ensure accountability for its planned reforms.
