Introduction On June 14, 2011, the Postal Service filed a notice announcing that it has entered into an additional Global Reseller Expedited Package (GREP) contract.1 The Postal Service believes the instant contract is functionally equivalent to the GREP baseline agreement and is supported by Governors’ Decision No. 10–1 attached to the Notice and originally filed in Docket No. CP2010–36. Id. at 1, Attachment 3. The Notice explains that Order No. 445, which established GREP Contracts 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 1–2. Additionally, the Postal Service requested to have the contract in Docket No. CP2010–36 serve as the baseline contract for future functional equivalence analyses of the GREP Contracts 1 product. The instant contract. The Postal Service filed the instant contract pursuant to 39 CFR 3015.5. In addition, the Postal Service contends that the instant contract is in accordance with Order No. 445. The instant contract is a renewal of the first GREP contract, filed in Docket No. CP2010–36, which is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2011. Notice at 1. The Postal Service will notify the mailer of the effective date within 30 days after all necessary regulatory approvals have been received. The contract will remain in effect until January 31, 2012, or a date in January 2012 prior to the Postal Service’s publication of price changes for its Express Mail International and/or Priority Mail International products. Id. at 3. It may, however, be terminated by either party on not less than 30 days’ written notice. Id. Attachment 1 at 5. In support of its Notice, the Postal Service filed four attachments as follows: • Attachment 1—a redacted copy of the contract and applicable annexes; • Attachment 2—a certified statement required by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2); • Attachment 3—a redacted copy of Governors’ Decision No. 10–1, which establishes prices and classifications for GREP contracts, a description of applicable GREP 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 maintain redacted portions of the 1 Notice of United States Postal Service of Filing a Functionally Equivalent Global Reseller Expedited Package Negotiated Service Agreement and Application for Non-Public Treatment of Materials Filed Under Seal, June 14, 2011 (Notice). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:40 Jun 21, 2011 Jkt 223001 contract and supporting documents under seal. The Notice advances reasons why the instant GREP contract fits within the Mail Classification Schedule language for GREP Contracts 1. The Postal Service identifies general contract terms that distinguish the instant contract from the baseline GREP agreement. It states that the instant contract differs from the contract in Docket No. CP2010–36 pertaining to revisions or clarification of terms, e.g., definition of qualifying mail, discounts offered by the reseller, minimum revenue, periodic review of minimum commitment, term, assignment, number of rate groups, and solicitation of reseller’s customers. Id. at 4–6. The Postal Service states that the differences, which include price variations based on updated costing information and volume commitments, do not alter the contract’s functional equivalency. Id. at 4. The Postal Service asserts that ‘‘[b]ecause the agreement incorporates the same cost attributes and methodology, the relevant characteristics of this GREP contract are similar, if not the same, as the relevant characteristics of the contract filed in Docket No. CP2010–36.’’ Id. The Postal Service concludes that its filing demonstrates that the new GREP contract complies with the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633 and is functionally equivalent to the baseline GREP contract. It states that the differences do not affect the services being offered or the fundamental structure of the contract. Therefore, it requests that the instant contract be included within the GREP Contracts 1 product. Id. at 6. II. Notice of Filing The Commission establishes Docket No. CP2011–65 for consideration of matters related to the contract identified 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. Comments are due no later than June 24, 2011.

I. Introduction

    On June 14, 2011, the Postal Service filed a notice announcing that 
it has entered into an additional Global Reseller Expedited Package 
(GREP) contract.\1\ The Postal Service believes the instant contract is 
functionally equivalent to the GREP baseline agreement and is supported 
by Governors' Decision No. 10-1 attached to the Notice and originally 
filed in Docket No. CP2010-36. Id. at 1, Attachment 3. The Notice 
explains that Order No. 445, which established GREP Contracts 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 1-2. Additionally, the Postal Service 
requested to have the contract in Docket No. CP2010-36 serve as the 
baseline contract for future functional equivalence analyses of the 
GREP Contracts 1 product.

    \1\ Notice of United States Postal Service of Filing a 
Functionally Equivalent Global Reseller Expedited Package Negotiated 
Service Agreement and Application for Non-Public Treatment of 
Materials Filed Under Seal, June 14, 2011 (Notice).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The instant contract. The Postal Service filed the instant contract 
pursuant to 39 CFR 3015.5. In addition, the Postal Service contends 
that the instant contract is in accordance with Order No. 445. The 
instant contract is a renewal of the first GREP contract, filed in 
Docket No. CP2010-36, which is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2011. 
Notice at 1. The Postal Service will notify the mailer of the effective 
date within 30 days after all necessary regulatory approvals have been 
received. The contract will remain in effect until January 31, 2012, or 
a date in January 2012 prior to the Postal Service's publication of 
price changes for its Express Mail International and/or Priority Mail 
International products. Id. at 3. It may, however, be terminated by 
either party on not less than 30 days' written notice. Id. Attachment 1 
at 5.
    In support of its Notice, the Postal Service filed four attachments 
as follows:
     Attachment 1--a redacted copy of the contract and 
applicable annexes;
     Attachment 2--a certified statement required by 39 CFR 
3015.5(c)(2);
     Attachment 3--a redacted copy of Governors' Decision No. 
10-1, which establishes prices and classifications for GREP contracts, 
a description of applicable GREP 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 maintain redacted portions of the contract and supporting 
documents under seal.
    The Notice advances reasons why the instant GREP contract fits 
within the Mail Classification Schedule language for GREP Contracts 1. 
The Postal Service identifies general contract terms that distinguish 
the instant contract from the baseline GREP agreement. It states that 
the instant contract differs from the contract in Docket No. CP2010-36 
pertaining to revisions or clarification of terms, e.g., definition of 
qualifying mail, discounts offered by the reseller, minimum revenue, 
periodic review of minimum commitment, term, assignment, number of rate 
groups, and solicitation of reseller's customers. Id. at 4-6. The 
Postal Service states that the differences, which include price 
variations based on updated costing information and volume commitments, 
do not alter the contract's functional equivalency. Id. at 4. The 
Postal Service asserts that ``[b]ecause the agreement incorporates the 
same cost attributes and methodology, the relevant characteristics of 
this GREP contract are similar, if not the same, as the relevant 
characteristics of the contract filed in Docket No. CP2010-36.'' Id.
    The Postal Service concludes that its filing demonstrates that the 
new GREP contract complies with the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633 and 
is functionally equivalent to the baseline GREP contract. It states 
that the differences do not affect the services being offered or the 
fundamental structure of the contract. Therefore, it requests that the 
instant contract be included within the GREP Contracts 1 product. Id. 
at 6.
