Ordering Paragraphs srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES I. Introduction On September 16, 2010, the Postal Service filed a notice announcing that it has entered into three additional Global Expedited Package Services 3 (GEPS 3) contracts.1 The Postal Service believes the instant contracts are functionally equivalent to previously submitted GEPS 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 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 2. In Order No. 290, the Commission approved the GEPS 2 product.2 In Order No. 503, the Commission approved the GEPS 3 product. Additionally, the Postal Service requested to have the contract in Docket No. CP2010–71 serve as the baseline contract for future functional equivalence analyses of the GEPS 3 product. 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 3. In support of its Notice, the Postal Service filed four attachments as follows: Attachment 1A, 1B and 1C—redacted copies of the three contracts and applicable annexes; Attachment 2A, 2B and 2C—certified statements required by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2) for each contract; 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 of the formulas, and certification of the Governors’ vote; and Attachment 4—an application for non–public treatment of materials to 1 Notice of United States Postal Service of Filing Three Functionally Equivalent Global Expedited Package Services 3 Negotiated Service Agreements and Application For Non-Public Treatment of Materials Filed Under Seal, September 16, 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). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:52 Sep 22, 2010 Jkt 220001 maintain redacted portions of the contract and supporting documents under seal. The Notice advances reasons why the instant GEPS 3 contracts fit within the Mail Classification Schedule language for the GEPS product. The Postal Service identifies customer–specific information and general contract terms that distinguish the instant contracts from the baseline GEPS 3 agreement. Id. at 4–5. It states that the differences, which include price variations based on updated costing information and volume commitments, do not alter the contracts’ functional equivalency. Id. at 4. The Postal Service asserts that ‘‘[b]ecause the agreements incorporate the same cost attributes and methodology, the relevant characteristics of these three GEPS contracts are similar, if not the same, as the relevant characteristics of previously filed contracts.’’ Id. The Postal Service concludes that its filings demonstrate that each of the new GEPS 3 contracts complies with the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633 and is functionally equivalent to the baseline GEPS 3 contract. Therefore, it requests that the instant contracts be included within the GEPS 3 product. Id. at 5. II. Notice of Filing The Commission establishes Docket Nos. CP2010–116, CP2010–117 and CP2010–118 for consideration of matters related to the contracts identified in the Postal Service’s Notice.
