Attachment 2–a redacted copy of the contract a certified statement required by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2); 3. Attachment 3–a certified statement required by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2); 4. Attachment 4–a redacted copy of Governors’ Decision No. 08–07, which establishes prices and classifications for GEPS contracts, a description of applicable GEPS contracts, formulas for prices, an analysis and certification of the Governors’ vote; and 5. Attachment 5–an application for non-public treatment of materials to maintain redacted portions of the contract and supporting documents under seal. Functional equivalence. The Notice advances reasons why the instant GEPS 3 contract fits within the Mail Classification Schedule language for GEPS contracts. The Postal Service contends that instant contract is functionally equivalent to previous GEPS 2 contracts and should be added to the competitive product list as GEPS 3 to replace GEPS 2 contracts as they expire. Id. at 4. It asserts that the instant contract shares the same cost and market characteristics as the previously filed GEPS 2 contracts and the same customers, small or medium-sized businesses, that mail products directly to foreign destinations using Express Mail International, Priority Mail International, or both. Id. The Postal Service identifies customer-specific information, general contract terms and other differences that distinguish the instant contract from the baseline GEPS 2 agreement, all of which are highlighted in the Notice. Id. at 5– 8. The Postal Service contends that in spite of these differences the instant contract is functionally equivalent to previously filed GEPS contracts and fits within the requirements of the Governors Decision for GEPS agreements. Id. at 5. See also id. (‘‘[T]he relevant characteristics are similar, if not the same, for this GEPS 3 contract and the previously filed contracts.’’). The Postal Service also contends that its filings demonstrate that the new GEPS 3 contract complies with the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633, is functionally equivalent to other GEPS contracts and should be considered the baseline for future GEPS agreements. It requests approval for the contract to be included within the GEPS 3 product. Id. at 8. Baseline treatment. The Postal Service states that the instant contract takes the place of its immediate predecessor which served as the baseline contract for the GEPS 2 product. It requests that the instant contract be considered the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:30 Jul 26, 2010 Jkt 220001 new ‘baseline’ agreement for consideration of future GEPS 3 agreements’ functional equivalency.’’ Id. at 8. II. Notice of Filing The Commission establishes Docket Nos. MC2010–28 and CP2010–71 for consideration of matters raised in the Postal Service’s Notice. Interested persons may submit comments on whether the Postal Service’s contract is consistent with the policies of 39 U.S.C. 3632, 3633, or 3642, 39 CFR part 3015, and 39 CFR 3020 subpart B.
