The Postal Service included a redacted version of the related contract with the Request. Id. Attachment B. The contract is scheduled to become effective on the date that the Commission issues all regulatory approvals. Id. at 2.

The Postal Service represents that the contract is consistent with 39 U.S.C. 3633(a). Id. Attachment D.
