Proposal Two Background. During the FY 2016 Annual Compliance Determination (ACD) process, in response to an information request, the Postal Service developed a methodology for revising the International Cost and Revenue Analysis report (ICRA) by changing the costing methodology for the treatment of Inbound mail, including Letter Post, Parcel Post and Express Mail Service to adjust for the increasingly difficult task of maintaining statistical reliability of reporting UPU Target and Transition Countries separately. Proposal Two at 1–2. Proposal Two is presented in response to Commission discussion in the FY 2016 ACD regarding those revisions.2 Although the methodology was used provisionally for assessing compliance in the FY 2016 ACD, the Commission stated that the methodology must be reviewed by the Commission through a docketed proceeding before it may be used in future ACDs. Proposal Two at 2; see FY 2016 ACD at 64. Proposal. Proposal Two implements the costing methodology developed in response to Chairman’s Information Request No. 12, question 1, in the FY 2016 ACD process and consolidates the cost estimates for Target and Transition Countries. Proposal Two at 6. Proposal Two would also combine Inbound Letter Post from Target and Transition Countries at UPU rates reporting into a single ICRA Inbound Letter Post at UPU rates line separate from Canada. There would no longer be a need for the InOffice Cost System analysis to separate costs into Target and Transition Countries in the Cost and Revenue Analysis Cost Segments tab of the Inputs file. The Canada and UPU separation remains in place. Id. Rationale and impact. The Postal Service states that continuing the Target Country and Transition Country distinction is not consistent with the current Mail Classification Schedule (MCS) and produces increasingly unreliable or misleading cost estimates due to the shrinking Transition Country classification. Id. The MCS makes no distinction between Target and Transition Countries regarding Inbound 2 See Docket No. ACR2016, Annual Compliance Determination, March 28, 2017, at 63–65 (FY 2016 ACD).

Initiation of a Proceeding to Consider Proposed Changes in 
Analytical Principles (Proposal Two), June 8, 2017 (Petition).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

II. Proposal Two

    Background. During the FY 2016 Annual Compliance Determination 
(ACD) process, in response to an information request, the Postal 
Service developed a methodology for revising the International Cost and 
Revenue Analysis report (ICRA) by changing the costing methodology for 
the treatment of Inbound mail, including Letter Post, Parcel Post and 
Express Mail Service to adjust for the increasingly difficult task of 
maintaining statistical reliability of reporting UPU Target and 
Transition Countries separately. Proposal Two at 1-2. Proposal Two is 
presented in response to Commission discussion in the FY 2016 ACD 
regarding those revisions.\2\ Although the methodology was used 
provisionally for assessing compliance in the FY 2016 ACD, the 
Commission stated that the methodology must be reviewed by the 
Commission through a docketed proceeding before it may be used in 
future ACDs. Proposal Two at 2; see FY 2016 ACD at 64.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Docket No. ACR2016, Annual Compliance Determination, 
March 28, 2017, at 63-65 (FY 2016 ACD). The Postal Service states 
that the Commission linked the potential filing of Proposal Two to 
discussion of certain other topics but that none of the issues 
raised by these topics directly relates to the merits of Proposal 
Two and views it as entirely independent of these other matters.

    Proposal. Proposal Two implements the costing methodology developed 
in response to Chairman's Information Request No. 12, question 1, in 
the FY 2016 ACD process and consolidates the cost estimates for Target 
and Transition Countries. Proposal Two at 6. Proposal Two would also 
combine Inbound Letter Post from Target and Transition Countries at UPU 
rates reporting into a single ICRA Inbound Letter Post at UPU rates 
line separate from Canada. There would no longer be a need for the In-
Office Cost System analysis to separate costs into Target and 
Transition Countries in the Cost and Revenue Analysis Cost Segments tab 
of the Inputs file. The Canada and UPU separation remains in place. Id.
    Rationale and impact. The Postal Service states that continuing the 
Target Country and Transition Country distinction is not consistent 
with the current Mail Classification Schedule (MCS) and produces 
increasingly unreliable or misleading cost estimates due to the 
shrinking Transition Country classification. Id. The MCS makes no 
distinction between Target and Transition Countries regarding Inbound 
Letter Post. Id. The Postal Service believes that the current MCS 
classification is consistent with the fact that there is no costing 
reason to maintain a distinction between Target and Transition 
Countries. Id. at 7. The differences arising from the proposed 
modification are presented in a non-public file which was filed under
