The justification must demonstrate that: (a) There are no alternative domestically approved packages available; (b) the contents cannot be reconfigured such that transport can be conducted in accordance with the regulations; and (c) the transport schedule cannot be adjusted so as to be conducted in accordance with the regulations. The justification must also describe any goodfaith efforts to acquire replacement packages that meet the current package performance requirements, including a detailed description of past activities and the current status of acquiring replacement packages. In addition, any adverse impacts that will result if the shipment is not conducted should be fully described. (4) Safety Justification for Continued Use and Proposed Compensatory Measures. Since the expiring package designs may lack safety enhancements included in newer designs, the request must include a safety justification for continued use and a description of compensatory measures that will be used to provide an equivalent level of safety. Examples of compensatory measures that may be considered are: (a) Special package inspections, tests, or determinations that ensure that the packaging is in unimpaired physical condition; (b) transport by exclusive use; (c) transport during time of low road usage; and (d) accompaniment of shipment by escort equipped to effect a recovery in an emergency situation or in case of a transportation accident. (5) A Plan and Schedule to Acquire Replacement Packages or Complete Necessary Shipments. Details about the planned acquisition of replacement packages must be provided, along with key milestones, and proposed implementation dates, unless the licensee can show why acquiring a replacement package is not practical and why shipments cannot be made before the October 1, 2008, expiration date.

Attachment 1 to the Request consists of Decision of the Governors of the United States Postal Service on the Establishment of Prices and Classifications for Global Direct, Global Bulk Economy, and Global Plus Contracts (Governors’ Decision No. 08–10), July 16, 2008 (Governors’ Decision). The Governors’ Decision includes its own set of attachments presenting proposed classification language, pricing formulas and analyses, and the certification required under Commission rules. In the Request as filed, portions of the Governors’ Decision and some of the attachments are redacted. Attachment 2 to the Request is the Statement of Supporting Justification provided by Frank Cebello, Executive Director of Global Business Management for the Postal Service (Cebello Statement) in the capacity of sponsor of the instant Request. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:12 Aug 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 notice of (1) issuance of the Governors’ Decision authorizing the new product; (2) the execution of two related contracts; and (3) submission of supporting material under seal.2 Request. The Request was filed pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3642 and 39 CFR 3020.30 et seq. Substantively, it seeks the addition of a shell classification in the competitive product list for a product referred to as Global Plus 2 Negotiated Service Agreements. Prices for this product, by the terms of the Governors’ Decision, are established by setting price floor and price ceiling formulas in the contracts. The Request also addresses the Postal Service’s interest in confidentiality; presents proposed Mail Classification Schedule (MCS) language; cites the Cebello Statement with respect to satisfaction of pertinent Commission rules; and discusses reasons why the Global Plus 2 contracts should be deemed functionally equivalent. Request at 2–7. It affirmatively notes that the contracts include retroactivity provisions.3 Id. at 7–9. Related contracts. The Postal Service contemporaneously filed contracts related to the proposed new product listing pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3632(b)(3) and 39 CFR 3015.5. It maintains that both contracts, by virtue of their terms, fit within the proposed MCS language. It asks that the contracts be added as one product to the competitive product list for prices not of general applicability. Id. at 1. It further notes that both contracts are set to expire July 1, 2009. Id. at 2. II. Notice of Filings The Commission establishes Docket Nos.

Interested persons may submit 2 This material includes an unredacted version of the enabling Governors’ Decision, the record of proceedings, and other documents addressing compliance with 39 CFR 3015.5. 3 The Postal Service states that the retroactivity provisions were intended to sustain customer relationships and avoid an interruption in service given uncertainty about the timing of review of the new Global Plus 2 contracts; however, it further notes that based on the Commission’s decision and guidance in Order No. 85 (which was issued after the Global Plus 2 contracts were executed), it no longer intends to present future contracts to the Commission with retroactivity provisions. Instead, it will avail itself of the procedure for expedited consideration of requests for temporary relief when warranted. Request at 9.
