Introduction On August 22, 2016, 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 the Postal Service’s periodic reports.1 Proposal Two is attached to the Petition and proposes an analytical method change relating to the treatment of carrier costs within the International Cost and Revenue Analysis (ICRA) report. Petition at 1. II. Summary of Proposal Under Proposal Two, the Postal Service seeks to revise the method for distributing city carrier street and rural carrier costs to products in the ICRA report. Petition, Proposal Two at 1. Specifically, the Postal Service proposes to ‘‘align the ICRA methodology with the Cost and Revenue Analysis (CRA) methodology used for developing delivery costs.’’ Id. The Postal Service recommends synchronization of the methods for three elements of the city carrier street model (letter routes, special purpose routes, and support and other costs) and for one element of the rural carrier model. Id. The Postal Service asserts that this proposed change would result in improved accuracy of international cost estimates. Id. at 7. III. Notice and Comment The Commission establishes Docket No. RM2016–10 for consideration of matters raised by the Petition. Additional information concerning the Petition may be accessed via the Commission’s Web site at http:// www.prc.gov.
