Commission Action IV. Ordering Paragraphs I. Overview On August 11, 2009, the Postal Service filed with the Commission a notice announcing its intention, pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3622 and 39 CFR part 3010, to adjust prices for certain First-Class Mail presorted letters, flats and cards sent by qualifying mailers.1 The Postal Service characterizes the planned adjustment as a temporary First-Class Mail Incentive Program (Program) to spur volume growth during the current recession. Key elements of the Program include a 20 percent rebate on qualifying incremental volume; certain volume thresholds; and a 3month duration, extending from October 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009. Id. at 2–3. The Notice addresses plans for public notice; program description and administration; price cap compliance; statutory objectives and factors; workshare discounts; and impact on preferred rates. A schedule of the new temporary prices and conforming revisions to Mail Classification Schedule language appear in Appendix A to the Notice in compliance with Commission rules 3010.14(a)(1) and 3010.14(b)(9). II. Postal Service Filing Program description. The Postal Service asserts that the proposed Program will give eligible companies a 20 percent postage rebate on qualifying presort letter, flat and card volumes mailed between October 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009. Id. Qualifying volume is defined as a single company’s First-Class Mail volume over and above a predetermined threshold. Id. at 3. Eligibility; rebate threshold. To be eligible to participate in the Program, a company must have mailed 500,000 or more non-parcel First-Class Mail pieces between October 1 and December 31 in both 2007 and 2008 through companyowned permit accounts or through permits set up on the company’s behalf by a Mail Service Provider. Id. Participants must then exceed a company-specific threshold during October 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009 to qualify for the incentive rebate.2 1 United States Postal Service Notice of MarketDominant Price Adjustment, August 11, 2009 (Notice). The Postal Service also refers to the qualifying presorted pieces as non-parcel First-Class Mail. See, for example, Id. at 4. 2 This threshold is determined by computing the ratio of the October 1–December 31, 2008 nonparcel First-Class Mail presorted volume to the October 1–December 31, 2007 non-parcel FirstClass Mail presorted volume. The result is then PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41947 Incremental volume mailed by an eligible, participating company above the calculated threshold will earn a 20 percent rebate. Rebate calculation; credit. The rebate will be calculated as the average revenue per piece for all eligible mail volume during the program period multiplied by the incremental volume above the threshold during the program period. It will be credited to the company’s permit trust account. Id. Program intent. The stated intent of the Program is to provide an incentive for customers to increase non-parcel First-Class Mail presorted volume above the volume they otherwise would have sent. To protect this core element of the Program, the Postal Service includes provisions to address the possibility of strategic shifting or withholding of volume. Id. at 4. Program administration. The Notice addresses several aspects of program administration, including methods for contacting eligible mailers; procedures for establishing company thresholds and crediting rebates to permit trust accounts; data collection and reporting (including filing some data under seal); financial impact; and risk. See generally id. at 4–8. Under the data collection plan, the Postal Service will submit Programrelated data to the Commission 90 days after the payment of incentive rebates. The Notice describes specific components of the plan, notes that some participant data will be filed under seal, and states that actual administrative costs will be identified. Id. at 6. With respect to the financial aspects of the Program, the Postal Service expects, based on the 20 percent rebate and the expressed interest of customers, a contribution increase of around $24 million and a revenue increase, net of the 20 percent rebate, of $43 million. It anticipates new volume of about 103 million pieces, which it says will generate about $31 million in additional revenue and $16 million in contribution. It also expects about 103 million pieces to ‘‘buy up’’ from Standard Mail, providing an additional $12 million in revenue and $8 million in contribution. Id. at 7. Administrative costs are expected to total $809,000, and to be easily covered by the contribution generated from additional volume. Id. The Postal Service’s primary measure of success will be incremental revenue and volume growth over the threshold for participating customers, but qualitative aspects, such as the Postal multiplied by the company’s October 1–December 31, 2008 non-parcel First-Class Mail presorted volume.
