Download as PDF jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 71500 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 223 / Friday, November 18, 2011 / Proposed Rules related activities, and the Miscellaneous Factor for mail processing-related activities. Id. To be more consistent with the current Cost and Revenue Analysis (CRA) methodology, Proposal Fourteen seeks to update several Special Services cost models by adding the appropriate Waiting Time Adjustment Factor and Miscellaneous Factors. Id. These cost models include Caller Service, Certificate of Mailing, Correction of Mailing List, Signature Confirmation, Periodicals Applications, P.O. Box Key and Lock, Restricted Delivery, and Zip Coding of Mailing List. Id. at 19–20. The Postal Service submitted updated cost models in files ‘‘Proposal14NonPublic.xls,’’ filed under seal, and ‘‘Proposal14Public.zip.’’ Id. at 20. The Postal Service illustrates the impact that Proposal Fourteen would have had on the unit costs reported in the FY 2010 ACR in a table on page 20 of the Petition. It includes an unredacted version of the table in Excel workbook ‘‘Proposal14Impact.xls,’’ filed under seal. Id. Proposal Fifteen: proposed changes in cost models related to Return Receipt service. The purpose of Proposal Fifteen is to correct and improve the cost models related to Return Receipt service, which are filed as a library reference in the FY 2010 ACR.7 The Postal Service states that several Return Receipt options are available to customers: The traditional Return Receipt (PS Form 3811), electronic Return Receipt (eRR), Return Receipt for Merchandise, and Return Receipt after Mailing. Petition at 21. It explains that the original cost study and models for Return Receipt service were developed in 1976 and updated in Docket Nos. MC96–3, R2000–1, and R2001–1. Id. The Postal Service notes that the studies are being updated again because some of the steps in the model are no longer performed, and some inadvertent errors appear in the current models. Id. It asserts that Proposal Fifteen will better align the Return Receipt service cost models with current operations and correct errors in those models. Id. Specifically, to be consistent with current CRA methodology, the Postal Service proposes to add Waiting Time and Miscellaneous (window overhead) factors to the window activities cost estimation for Return Receipt (PS Form 3811), eRR, and Return Receipt after 7 Id. at 21; Docket No. ACR2010, USPS–FY10–28, FY 2010 Special Cost Studies Workpapers—Special Services (Public Portion), December 29, 2010. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:37 Nov 17, 2011 Jkt 226001 Mailing.8 It seeks to add an overhead factor to the delivery activities for Return Receipt (PS Form 3811) and remove printing costs from the eRR model that were erroneously included in the original model. Id. at 23. Proposal Fifteen would also incorporate the Return Receipt (PS Form 3811) material costs into the model for Return Receipt for Merchandise. Id. The Postal Service explains that these costs were excluded from the original model. Id. It asserts that the overall costs of Return Receipt for Merchandise decrease in the revised model because the time to collect the signature is lower than that in the original model. Id. The Postal Service illustrates the impact that Proposal Fifteen would have had on the unit costs reported in the FY 2010 ACR in a table on page 24 of the Petition. The Petition and spreadsheets illustrating Proposals Nine through Fifteen are available for review on the Commission’s Web site, http://www.prc. gov. The Postal Service filed certain materials under seal.9 Pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 505, Lawrence Fenster is designated as the Public Representative to represent the interests of the general public in this proceeding. Comments are due no later than December 5, 2011. It is ordered: 1. The Petition of the United States Postal Service Requesting Initiation of a Proceeding to Consider Proposed Changes in Analytical Principles (Proposals Nine–Fifteen), filed November 1, 2011, is granted. 2. The Commission establishes Docket No. RM2012–1 to consider the matters raised by the Postal Service’s Petition. 3. Interested persons may submit comments on Proposals Nine through Fifteen no later than December 5, 2011. 4. The Commission will determine the need for reply comments after review of the initial comments. 5. Lawrence Fenster is appointed to serve as the Public Representative to represent the interests of the general public in this proceeding. 6. The Secretary shall arrange for publication of this Notice in the Federal Register. By the Commission. Shoshana M. Grove, Secretary.
