SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 16, 2011, the Postal Service filed notice with the Commission of changes in rates of general applicability and concomitant classification changes for a competitive product pursuant to 39 CFR 3015.2.[1] The Postal Service seeks to implement new prices for Parcel Select for forwarding and return to sender. The fee would be the applicable Parcel Select Barcoded Nonpresort prices, plus $3.00, for each Parcel Select forward or return. The proposed new prices will allow the Postal Service to more closely align with its competitors' charges.

The Postal Service includes six attachments with its Notice in support of its proposal to add new prices:

  • Decision of the Governors of the United States Postal Service on Establishment of Rate and Class of General Applicability for Parcel Select Forwarding and Return to Sender (Governors' Decision No. 11-5);
  • Management Analysis of Parcel Select Forwarding and Return to Sender;
  • Certification of Governors' Vote in the Governors' Decision No. 11-5;
  • Cost coverage analysis;
  • Proposed Mail Classification Schedule language; and
  • Application of the United States Postal Service for Non-Public Treatment of Materials. An unredacted copy of certain materials also has been filed with the Commission.

The Commission establishes Docket No. CP2011-64 for consideration of matters related to the proposed new prices identified in the Notice.

Interested persons may submit comments on whether the Postal Service's Notice is consistent with the policies of 39 U.S.C. 3632, 3633 and 3642 as well as 39 CFR parts 3015 and 3020. Comments are due no later than March 24, 2011. The Postal Service's Notice can be accessed via the Commission's Web site (http://www.prc.gov).
