Id. at 1, Attachment 3.

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: • Attachments 1A through 1E— redacted copies of the five contracts and applicable annexes; • Attachments 2A through 2E— 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 1 Notice of United States Postal Service of Filing Five Functionally Equivalent Global Expedited Package Services 3 Negotiated Service Agreements and Application For Non-Public Treatment of Materials Filed Under Seal, November 18, 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 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:
     Attachments 1A through 1E--redacted copies of the five 
contracts and applicable annexes;
     Attachments 2A through 2E--certified statements required 
by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2) for each contract;

prices, an analysis of the formulas, and certification of the 
Governors' vote; and
     Attachment 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 3 contracts fit 
within the Mail Classification Schedule language for the GEPS 3 
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 3-4. The Postal Service asserts that 
``[b]ecause the agreements incorporate the same cost attributes and 
methodology, the relevant characteristics of these five GEPS contracts 
are similar, if not the same, as the relevant characteristics of 
previously filed contracts.'' Id. at 4.
    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.
