Request at 2–3. To support its Request, the Postal Service filed the following attachments: • Attachment 1, an application for non-public treatment of materials filed under seal; • Attachment 2A, a redacted version of Governors’ Decision No. 11–6; • Attachment 2B, a revised version of the Mail Classification Schedule section 2510.8 GEPS—NPR; • Attachment 2C, a redacted version of GEPS—NPR 9 Management Analysis; • Attachment 2D, Maximum and Minimum Prices for Global Express Guaranteed (GXG), Priority Express Mail International (PMEI), Priority Mail International (PMI), and First-Class 1 Docket Nos.

In the Statement of Supporting Justification, Giselle Valera, Managing Director and Vice President, Global Business, asserts the product is designed to increase efficiency of the Postal Service’s processes, as well as enhance its ability to compete in the marketplace. Request, Attachment 3 at 1. She contends GEPS—NPR 9 belongs on the competitive product list as it is part of a market over which the Postal Service does not exercise market dominance,3 is not subsidized by market dominant products, covers costs attributable to it, and does not cause competitive products as a whole to fail to make the appropriate contribution to institutional costs. Request, Attachment 3 at 1. The Postal Service included a redacted version of the GEPS—NPR 9 model contract with the Request. Id. Attachment 4. The Postal Service represents the GEPS—NPR 9 model contract is similar to the GEPS—NPR 8 model contract approved by the Commission in Order No. 2774. Request at 6. The Postal Service represents it will notify each GEPS—NPR 9 customer of the contract’s effective date no later than 30 days after receiving the signed agreement from the customer. Id. Attachment 4 at 4. Unless terminated sooner, each contract will expire the one calendar year from its effective date (if the effective date is the first of the month) or from the last day of the month in which its effective date falls (if the effective date is not the first of the month). Id. The Postal Service represents that the contract is in compliance with 39 U.S.C. 3633. Request at 4, 9; id. Attachment 3 at 2– 3. The Postal Service filed much of the supporting materials, including an unredacted model contract, under seal. Request at 8. It maintains that the 3 The Postal Service claims it does not exercise sufficient market power to set the price of GXG, PMEI, PMI, and FCPIS substantially above costs, raise prices significantly, decrease quality, or decrease output, without risk of losing a significant level of business to other firms offering similar products.
