Initial Commission Action IV. Ordering Paragraphs I. Introduction On March 14, 2014, the Postal Service filed notice, pursuant to 39 CFR 3010.40 et seq., of a Type 2 rate adjustment and the filing of a related negotiated service agreement with China Post Group involving the inbound portion of a multi-product bilateral agreement (2014 Agreement).1 The Postal Service requests that the Commission include the 2014 Agreement within the Inbound Market Dominant Multi-Service Agreements with Foreign Postal Operators (MC2010–35, R2010–5, and R2010–6) (Foreign Postal Operators 1) product. Id. at 13. II. Contents of Filing The Postal Service’s filing consists of the Notice, two attachments, and redacted and unredacted versions of an Excel file with supporting financial workpapers. Id. at 2. Attachment 1 is an application for non-public treatment of material filed under seal with the Commission. Id. Attachment 2 is a redacted copy of the 2014 Agreement. Id. The Notice identifies May 1, 2014 as the intended effective date of the 2014 Agreement and June 30, 2015 as the expiration date. Id. at 11. The Notice asserts that the requisite 45 days’ advance notice is being provided; identifies a Postal Service official as a contact for further information; and 1 Notice of United States Postal Service of Type 2 Rate Adjustment, and Notice of Filing Functionally Equivalent Agreement with China Post Group, March 14, 2014 (collectively, Notice). PO 00000 Frm 00133 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16065 identifies the parties to the Agreement as the United States Postal Service and China Post Group, the postal operator for China. Id. at 2–4. The Notice states that the Agreement includes delivery confirmation scanning with Letter Post small packets, a service also included in the China Post 2010, China Post 2011, and China Post 2013 Agreements. Id. at 4. However, it states that the 2014 Agreement includes two versions of inbound scanning with small packets: China to United States Small Packet with Delivery Scanning Dispatched by China EMS (the subject of Annex 2) and China to United States Small Packet with Delivery Scanning Dispatched by China Letter Post (the subject of Annex 10). Id. It asserts that the two versions acknowledge the roles of, differentiate processing by, and improve settlement procedures in relation to the two entities within China Post that dispatch inbound delivery confirmation scanning with small packets. Id. The Notice states that the financial workpapers address the expected financial improvements, costs, volumes, and revenues; describes several operational improvements; and provides reasons why the 2014 Agreement will not result in unreasonable harm to the marketplace.

Id. at 8–12.

II. Contents of Filing

    The Postal Service's filing consists of the Notice, two 
attachments, and redacted and unredacted versions of an Excel file with 
supporting financial workpapers. Id. at 2. Attachment 1 is an 
application for non-public treatment of material filed under seal with

Agreement. Id.
    The Notice identifies May 1, 2014 as the intended effective date of 
the 2014 Agreement and June 30, 2015 as the expiration date. Id. at 11. 
The Notice asserts that the requisite 45 days' advance notice is being 
provided; identifies a Postal Service official as a contact for further 
information; and identifies the parties to the Agreement as the United 
States Postal Service and China Post Group, the postal operator for 
China. Id. at 2-4. The Notice states that the Agreement includes 
delivery confirmation scanning with Letter Post small packets, a 
service also included in the China Post 2010, China Post 2011, and 
China Post 2013 Agreements. Id. at 4. However, it states that the 2014 
Agreement includes two versions of inbound scanning with small packets: 
China to United States Small Packet with Delivery Scanning Dispatched 
by China EMS (the subject of Annex 2) and China to United States Small 
Packet with Delivery Scanning Dispatched by China Letter Post (the 
subject of Annex 10). Id. It asserts that the two versions acknowledge 
the roles of, differentiate processing by, and improve settlement 
procedures in relation to the two entities within China Post that 
dispatch inbound delivery confirmation scanning with small packets. Id.
    The Notice states that the financial workpapers address the 
expected financial improvements, costs, volumes, and revenues; 
describes several operational improvements; and provides reasons why 
the 2014 Agreement will not result in unreasonable harm to the 
marketplace. Id. at 4-7. It also includes requests for exceptions to 
the financial data and service performance requirements in 39 CFR

the filing with the statutory criteria in 39 U.S.C. 3622(c)(10); and 
discusses functional equivalency. Id. at 8-12. The functional 
equivalency discussion identifies the predecessor 2013 China Post 
Agreement as the baseline agreement; describes differences between the 
2014 Agreement and the baseline agreement; and concludes that the

similarity of cost characteristics of the two agreements. Id. at 11-12.
