I. Background

In July 2011, the Postal Service introduced a re-designed Web site with the first launch of multilingual functionality in October 2011 and added translated content in January 2012.

Additionally, in June 2012 the Postal Service made additional management and organizational changes.

II. Rationale for Changes to USPS Privacy Act Systems of Records

The Customer Experience Improvement Project enables a broader audience to successfully interact with the Postal Service in the customer's preferred language. As a result, these updates will allow customers to permanently select which language they want to use when receiving emails from the Postal Service and when visiting

Also, in regards to the system manager title update, there is a continuing need to reflect changes in the identity or title of responsible officials.

III. Description of Changes to Systems of Records
