Request. In support of its Request, the Postal Service filed four attachments as follows:

  • Attachment 1—a redacted copy of Governors' Decision No. 10-6 and attachments thereto, including MCS language describing Priority Mail—Non-published Rates, pricing and methodology, management analysis, and certification that the prices and methodology satisfy applicable criteria;
  • Attachment 2—a model contract between the Postal Service and a customer of Priority Mail—Non-published Rates;
  • Attachment 3—a Statement of Supporting Justification as required by 39 CFR 3020.32; and
  • Attachment 4—an application for non-public treatment of materials to maintain redacted portions of the Governors' Decision, with attachments, and supporting documents under seal.
