Introduction VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:48 Jun 22, 2015 Jkt 235001 On June 12, 2015, the Postal Service filed a petition pursuant to 39 CFR 3050.11 requesting that the Commission initiate an informal rulemaking proceeding to consider changes to analytical principles relating to periodic reports.1 Text attached to the Petition identifies the proposed analytical method changes filed in this docket as Proposal One, Proposed Change in RPW Methodology for Forever Stamp Usage, Stamp Breakage, and PIHOP. Id. Attachment at 1. The Postal Service concurrently filed a non-public library reference, along with an application for nonpublic treatment.2 II. Summary of Proposal The Petition requests a change in methodology for the treatment of revenue, pieces, and weight (RPW) associated with forever stamp usage, breakage, and Postage-in-the-Hands-ofthe-Public (PIHOP). Stamp breakage refers to the forever stamps that have been sold by the Postal Service but will never be used due to factors such as lost or damaged stamps and collectables. Id. at 3.

The library reference is USPS–RM2015–9/ NP1, Non-Public Material Relating to Proposal One. The Notice incorporates by reference the Application for Non-Public Treatment of Materials contained in Attachment Two to the December 29, 2014, United States Postal Service Fiscal Year 2014 Annual Compliance Report.

The Postal Service currently estimates forever stamp breakage by assigning stamps a category and an issue year, known as a layer. Id. at 3–4. When a layer of stamps is no longer available for sale and is determined to be at the end of its life cycle, as measured by the Origin Destination Information System (ODIS)-RPW system, the difference between cumulative sales and cumulative usage (calculated as a percentage) is deemed to be breakage and recognized as revenue for the Postal Service. Id. at 4. This breakage percentage is applied to forever stamp sales for that layer and all remaining open forever stamp layers, until the remaining layers expire and become the new basis for estimating the breakage percentage. Id. Forever stamp usage is collected by ODIS–RPW data collectors and expanded to national totals. Id. A separate process calculates the value of the layer used, based on the different prices at which it was originally sold. Id. at 5. The estimated forever stamp usage is included in the current Book Revenue Adjustment Factor (BRAF) calculation. Id. at 7. The Postal Service currently estimates PIHOP liability at the end of each accounting period. Id. at 5. PIHOP liability is calculated by subtracting the stamp breakage and stamp usage from stamp sales. Id. The proposed changes include using the ODIS–RPW estimates for forever stamps usage directly in the RPW Report. Id. at 9. Under the proposal, two changes would occur in the BRAF formulation: Forever stamp usage would be removed from the ODIS–RPW SinglePiece Sampling Revenue and forever stamp usage and forever stamp and nonforever stamp breakage would be E:\FR\FM\23JNP1.SGM 23JNP1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 120 / Tuesday, June 23, 2015 / Proposed Rules removed from the residual total balance. Id. at 10. In addition, breakage from both forever and non-forever stamps would be assigned to Market Dominant Other Revenue in the RPW Report and PIHOP revenues, including meter PIHOP, will no longer be allocated directly to products. Id. at 11. RPW reporting impacts. The Postal Service provides three tables that assess the impact of its proposal. Id. Table 1 shows the BRAF calculations for FY 2014 for current and proposed methodologies; Table 2 shows the FY 2014 RPW report for the current proposed methodologies; and Table 3 shows the same information for Quarter 2 Year-to-Date FY 2015.

II. Summary of Proposal

    The Petition requests a change in methodology for the treatment of 
revenue, pieces, and weight (RPW) associated with forever stamp usage, 
breakage, and Postage-in-the-Hands-of-the-Public (PIHOP). Stamp 
breakage refers to the forever stamps that have been sold by the Postal 
Service but will never be used due to factors such as lost or damaged 
stamps and collectables. Id. at 3. PIHOP refers to forever stamps that 
are being held by purchasers for future use. Id.
    The Postal Service currently estimates forever stamp breakage by 
assigning stamps a category and an issue year, known as a layer. Id. at 
3-4. When a layer of stamps is no longer available for sale and is 
determined to be at the end of its life cycle, as measured by the 
Origin Destination Information System (ODIS)-RPW system, the difference 
between cumulative sales and cumulative usage (calculated as a 
percentage) is deemed to be breakage and recognized as revenue for the 
Postal Service. Id. at 4. This breakage percentage is applied to 
forever stamp sales for that layer and all remaining open forever stamp 
layers, until the remaining layers expire and become the new basis for 
estimating the breakage percentage. Id.
    Forever stamp usage is collected by ODIS-RPW data collectors and 
expanded to national totals. Id. A separate process calculates the 
value of the layer used, based on the different prices at which it was 
originally sold. Id. at 5. The estimated forever stamp usage is 
included in the current Book Revenue Adjustment Factor (BRAF) 
calculation. Id. at 7. The Postal Service currently estimates PIHOP 
liability at the end of each accounting period. Id. at 5. PIHOP 
liability is calculated by subtracting the stamp breakage and stamp 
usage from stamp sales. Id.
    The proposed changes include using the ODIS-RPW estimates for 
forever stamps usage directly in the RPW Report. Id. at 9. Under the 
proposal, two changes would occur in the BRAF formulation: Forever 
stamp usage would be removed from the ODIS-RPW Single-Piece Sampling 
Revenue and forever stamp usage and forever stamp and non-forever stamp 
breakage would be

[[Page 35899]]

removed from the residual total balance. Id. at 10. In addition, 
breakage from both forever and non-forever stamps would be assigned to 
Market Dominant Other Revenue in the RPW Report and PIHOP revenues, 
including meter PIHOP, will no longer be allocated directly to 
products. Id. at 11.
    RPW reporting impacts. The Postal Service provides three tables 
that assess the impact of its proposal. Id. Table 1 shows the BRAF 
calculations for FY 2014 for current and proposed methodologies; Table 
2 shows the FY 2014 RPW report for the current proposed methodologies; 
and Table 3 shows the same information for Quarter 2 Year-to-Date FY 
2015. Id. at 11-12. Library Reference USPS-FY2015-9/NP1 contains non-
public versions of Tables 2 and 3. Id. at 12.
