Download as PDF 13712 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 40 / Thursday, February 28, 2013 / Notices The costs of the contracts analyzed were not excessively priced and did not present excessive risks to the government. The NLRB takes pride in monitoring service contracts closely with full cooperation from Contracting Officers, CORs, and Program Staff and Managers. Based on this analysis, we believe we have a balanced mix of contractors to employees and have the resources necessary to continue monitoring contracts effectively and efficiently to reduce risks of personal or inherently governmental contracts. The NLRB is committed to identifying and addressing any new risks related to service contracts, and will meet the challenges with swift and evasive action.

Id. at 1. The Request has been assigned Docket No. MC2013–41. The Postal Service contemporaneously filed a redacted contract related to the proposed new product under 39 U.S.C. 3632(b)(3) and 39 CFR 3015.5. Id. Attachment B. The instant contract has been assigned Docket No. CP2013–53. Request. To support its Request, the Postal Service filed six attachments as follows: • Attachment A—a redacted copy of Governors’ Decision No. 11–6, authorizing the new product; 1 Request of the United States Postal Service to Add Express Mail Contract 14 to Competitive Product List and Notice of Filing (Under Seal) of Unredacted Governors’ Decision, Contract, and Supporting Data, February 21, 2013 (Request).

In the Statement of Supporting Justification, Dennis R. Nicoski, Manager, Field Sales Strategy and Contracts, asserts that the contract will cover its attributable costs, make a positive contribution to covering institutional costs, and increase contribution toward the requisite 5.5 percent of the Postal Service’s total institutional costs. Id. Attachment D at 1. Mr. Nicoski contends that there will be no issue of market dominant products subsidizing competitive products as a result of this contract. Id. Related contract. The Postal Service included a redacted version of the related contract with the Request. Id. Attachment B. The contract is scheduled to become effective the day following the day that the Commission issues all necessary regulatory approval. Id. at 4.

The Postal Service represents that the contract is consistent with 39 U.S.C. 3633(a). Id. Attachment E. The Postal Service filed much of the supporting materials, including the related contract, under seal. Id. Attachment F. It maintains that the redacted portions of the Governors’ Decision, contract, customer-identifying information, and related financial information, should remain confidential. Id. at 3. This information includes the price structure, underlying costs and assumptions, pricing formulas, information relevant to the customer’s mailing profile, and cost coverage projections. Id.
