Locations providing Post Office Box service are assigned to fee groups and classified as competitive or market dominant based upon the Post Office location and other criteria.

In May 2011, a Request of the United States Postal Service was filed with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to transfer approximately 6,800 P.O. Box locations from market dominant to competitive fee groups. At that time, the Postal Service advised the PRC that a Federal Register notice would be filed when any future P.O. Box locations are transferred.

While the Naval Academy was excluded from the initial PRC filing due to a lack of public access, the customers at that location have a competitive choice. The U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Box Section ZIP 21412 facility, in Annapolis, Maryland, serves Start Printed Page 60929approximately 4,701 P.O. Box customers, and the location meets the criteria to be classified as and assigned to a competitive fee group. Therefore, the Postal Service has reassigned USNA Box Section ZIP 21412 from Market Dominant Fee Group 3 to Competitive Fee Group 35.

Documents pertinent to this request are available at, Docket No. MC2011-25.
