Download as PDF 30212 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 100 / Tuesday, May 24, 2011 / Notices propose additional transfers if justified. Id. at 3. Having completed its evaluation, the Postal Service asks the Commission to transfer P.O. Box Service at approximately 6,800 locations from the market dominant to the competitive product list. Request at 1. These locations comprise approximately onefifth of all P.O. Box Service locations and almost 44 percent of all post office boxes used by customers. Id. at 1–2. If the Commission approves the Request, almost 49 percent of all post office boxes would be classified as competitive, excluding Group E boxes. Id. at 2 n.5. The Postal Service selected the 6,800 locations based on whether its customers have sufficient access to private mailbox service providers. Id. at 2. In general, these locations serve customers who live within five miles of a current or recent private mailbox service provider. Id., Attachment B at 4– 5; Attachment C. The Postal Service excluded those P.O. Box Service locations that restrict customer access or have a small customer base.3 Id., Attachment B at 5–6. Those locations will remain on the market dominant product list despite their proximity to a private mailbox service provider. Id., Attachment B at 10. The Postal Service notes that it may ask the Commission to transfer other P.O. Box Service locations in the future as it studies the mailbox service market. Id. at 2. To support its Request, the Postal Service filed the following attachments: • Attachment A—Resolution of the Governors of the United States Postal Service on Transferring Selected Post Office Box Service Locations to the Competitive Product List, May 10, 2011 (Resolution No. 11–8); • Attachment B—Statement of Supporting Justification; and • Attachment C—Proposed MCS Changes. II. Notice of Filing jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES The Commission establishes Docket No. MC2011–25 to consider the Postal Service’s proposals described in its Request. 3 For business reasons, the Postal Service excluded from the proposed transfer all locations with 250 or fewer post office box customers. Request, Attachment B at 6. However, the proposed Mail Classification Schedule (MCS) language refers to a ‘‘small customer base’’ without a specific definition. Id., Attachment C. The Postal Service explains that it needs flexibility in the MCS language to prevent P.O. Box Service locations from switching back and forth between the market dominant and competitive product lists if the number of post office boxes exceeds or falls below 250. Id., Attachment B at 10 n.14. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 May 23, 2011 Jkt 223001 Interested persons may submit comments on whether the Request is consistent with the policies of 39 U.S.C. 3642, 39 CFR 3020.30 et seq., and the general provisions of title 39.
