Introduction II. Contents of Filing III. Commission Action IV. Ordering Paragraphs 2 rate adjustment in conjunction with a new negotiated service agreement.1 The Notice concerns the inbound portion of a bilateral agreement with Royal PostNL BV (PostNL) (Agreement), which the Postal Service seeks to include within the Inbound Market Dominant MultiService Agreements with Foreign Postal Operators 1 (Docket Nos. MC2010–35, R2010–5 and R2010–6) product. Notice at 1. 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 Agreement. Id. The Postal Service includes a redacted version of the financial workpapers with its filing as a separate public Excel file. The Postal Service states that the intended effective date of the Agreement is January 1, 2015; asserts that it is providing more than the 45 days advance notice required under 39 CFR 3010.41; and identifies the parties to the Agreement as the United States Postal Service and PostNL, the postal operator for the Netherlands. Id. at 3–4. Reporting requirements. Rule 3010.43 requires the Postal Service to submit a detailed data collection plan. In lieu of a special data collection for the Agreement, the Postal Service proposes to report information on the Agreement through the Annual Compliance Report. Id at 7. The Postal Service also invokes, with respect to service performance measurement reporting under rule 3055.3(a)(3), the standing exception in Order No. 996 for all agreements filed in the Inbound Market Dominant MultiService Agreements with Foreign Postal Operators 1 product grouping. Id. Consistency with applicable statutory criteria. The Postal Service observes that Commission review of a negotiated service agreement addresses three statutory criteria, whether the agreement: (1) improves the Postal Service’s net financial position or enhances the performance of operational functions; (2) will not cause unreasonable harm to the marketplace; and (3) will be available on public and reasonable terms to similarly-situated mailers. Id. at 7–8 (citing 39 U.S.C. 3622(c)(10)). The Postal Service asserts that it addresses the first two criteria in I. Introduction On November 14, 2014, the Postal Service filed a notice, pursuant to 39 CFR 3010.40 et seq., announcing a Type VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:00 Nov 20, 2014 Jkt 235001 1 United States Postal Service Notice of Type 2 Rate Adjustment, Notice Filing Functionally Equivalent Agreement and Application for Nonpublic Treatment, November 14, 2014 (Notice).

Id. at 8. Functional equivalence. The Postal Service addresses reasons why it considers the Agreement functionally equivalent to the Koninklijke TNT PostBV and TNT Post Pakketservice Benelux BV (TNT Agreement) baseline agreement, notwithstanding acknowledgement and identification of similarities and differences.2 The Postal Service asserts that it does not consider that the specified differences detract from the conclusion that the Agreement is functionally equivalent to the baseline TNT Agreement. Id. at 11. III. Commission Action The Commission, in conformance with rule 3010.44, establishes Docket No. R2015–3 to consider issues raised by the Notice. The Commission invites comments from interested persons on whether the Agreement is consistent with 39 U.S.C. 3622 and the requirements of 39 CFR part 3010.
