Notice of Filing III. Ordering Paragraphs I. Introduction On May 26, 2010, the Postal Service filed a notice announcing that it has entered into five additional Global Expedited Package Services 2 (GEPS 2) contracts.1 The Postal Service believes the instant contracts are functionally equivalent to previously submitted GEPS 2 contracts, and are supported by Governors’ Decision No. 08-7, attached to the Notice and originally filed in Docket No. CP2008-4. Id. at 1, Attachment 3. The Notice also explains that Order No. 86, which established GEPS 1 as a product, also authorized functionally equivalent agreements to be included within the product, provided that they meet the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633. Id. at 1. In Order No. 290, the Commission approved the GEPS 2 product.2 The instant contracts. The Postal Service filed the instant contracts pursuant to 39 CFR 3015.5. In addition, the Postal Service contends that each contract is in accordance with Order No. 86. The term of each contract is one year from the date the Postal Service notifies the customer that all necessary regulatory approvals have been received. Notice at 2-3. In support of its Notice, the Postal Service filed four attachments as follows: •Attachments 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D and 1E—redacted copies of five contracts and applicable annexes; •Attachments 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D and 2E—a certified statement required by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2) for each of the five contracts; •Attachment 3—a redacted copy of Governors’ Decision No. 08-7 which establishes prices and classifications for GEPS contracts, a description of applicable GEPS contracts, formulas for prices, an analysis and certification of 1 Notice of United States Postal Service Filing of Five Functionally Equivalent Global Expedited Package Services 2 Negotiated Service Agreements and Application for Non-Public Treatment of Materials Filed Under Seal, May 26, 2010 (Notice). 2 Docket No. CP2009-50, Order Granting Clarification and Adding Global Expedited Package Services 2 to the Competitive Product List, August 28, 2009 (Order No. 290).

The Notice advances reasons why the instant GEPS 2 contracts fit within the Mail Classification Schedule language for GEPS 2. The Postal Service identifies customer-specific information, general contract terms, and other differences that distinguish the instant contracts from the baseline GEPS 2 agreement, all of which are highlighted in the Notice. Id. at 3-6. The Postal Service contends that the instant contracts are functionally equivalent to previously filed GEPS contracts and are substantially similar to that in Docket No. CP2009-50 in terms of the product being offered, the market in which it is offered, and its cost characteristics. Id. at 2-3. See also id. at 6 (‘‘[T]he relevant cost and market characteristics are similar, if not the same for these five contracts and the baseline GEPS 2 contract’’). The Postal Service also contends that its filings demonstrate that each of the new GEPS 2 contracts complies with the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633. It requests that the contracts be included within the GEPS 2 product. Id. at 7. II. Notice of Filing The Commission establishes Docket Nos. CP2010-54, CP2010-55, DP2010-56, CP2010-57 and CP2010-58 for consideration of matters related to the contracts identified in the Postal Service’s Notice.

    On May 26, 2010, the Postal Service filed a notice announcing that 
it has entered into five additional Global Expedited Package Services 2 
(GEPS 2) contracts.\1\ The Postal Service believes the instant 
contracts are functionally equivalent to previously submitted GEPS 2 
contracts, and are supported by Governors' Decision No. 08-7, attached 
to the Notice and originally filed in Docket No. CP2008-4. Id. at 1, 
Attachment 3. The Notice also explains that Order No. 86, which 
established GEPS 1 as a product, also authorized functionally 
equivalent agreements to be included within the product, provided that 
they meet the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633. Id. at 1. In Order No.

    \1\ Notice of United States Postal Service Filing of Five 
Functionally Equivalent Global Expedited Package Services 2 
Negotiated Service Agreements and Application for Non-Public 
Treatment of Materials Filed Under Seal, May 26, 2010 (Notice).

Adding Global Expedited Package Services 2 to the Competitive 
Product List, August 28, 2009 (Order No. 290).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     The instant contracts. The Postal Service filed the instant 
contracts pursuant to 39 CFR 3015.5. In addition, the Postal Service 
contends that each contract is in accordance with Order No. 86. The 
term of each contract is one year from the date the Postal Service 
notifies the customer that all necessary regulatory approvals have been 
received. Notice at 2-3.
    In support of its Notice, the Postal Service filed four attachments 
as follows:
    Attachments 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D and 1E--redacted copies of five 
contracts and applicable annexes;
    Attachments 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D and 2E--a certified statement 
required by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2) for each of the five contracts;
    Attachment 3--a redacted copy of Governors' Decision No. 
08-7 which establishes prices and classifications for GEPS contracts, a 
description of applicable GEPS contracts, formulas for prices, an 
analysis and certification of the formulas and certification of the 
Governors' vote; and
    Atachment 4--an application for non-public treatment of 
materials to maintain redacted portions of the contracts and supporting 
documents under seal.
    The Notice advances reasons why the instant GEPS 2 contracts fit 
within the Mail Classification Schedule language for GEPS 2. The Postal 
Service identifies customer-specific information, general contract 
terms, and other differences that distinguish the instant contracts 
from the baseline GEPS 2 agreement, all of which are highlighted in the 
Notice. Id. at 3-6.
    The Postal Service contends that the instant contracts are 
functionally equivalent to previously filed GEPS contracts and are 
substantially similar to that in Docket No. CP2009-50 in terms of the 
product being offered, the market in which it is offered, and its cost 
characteristics. Id. at 2-3. See also id. at 6 (``[T]he relevant cost 
and market characteristics are similar, if not the same for these five 
contracts and the baseline GEPS 2 contract'').
    The Postal Service also contends that its filings demonstrate that 
each of the new GEPS 2 contracts complies with the requirements of 39 
U.S.C. 3633. It requests that the contracts be included within the GEPS 
2 product. Id. at 7.
