I. Introduction

In Order No. 2480, the Commission approved the Priority Mail Express & Priority Mail Contract 18 negotiated service agreement (Existing Agreement).[1] On October 29, 2018, the Postal Service filed notice that it has agreed to the Amendment to the Existing Agreement.[2] On October 30, Start Printed Page 559182018, the Commission issued a notice reopening this docket to consider the Amendment, appointing a Public Representative, and providing interested persons with an opportunity to comment.[3]

The Commission set the deadline for comments as November 6, 2018. Notice Initiating Dockets at 2. However, the Existing Agreement expires November 8, 2018,[4] and the Amendment extending the agreement, if approved, would not take effect until two days after the Commission completes its review. Notice, Attachment A at 1. Under the current schedule, the soonest the Commission could issue a decision on the Amendment is November 7, 2018, which would cause the Existing Agreement to expire before the Amendment could take effect.

To permit the Commission time to review the comments and issue an order on the Amendment at least two days before the Existing Agreement expires, the deadline for comments is revised to November 5, 2018.

It is ordered:

1. The deadline to submit comments is revised to November 5, 2018.

2. The Secretary shall arrange for publication of this order in the Federal Register.

By the Commission.
