Revealing this information could compromise sensitive information or interfere with the overall law enforcement process by revealing a pending sensitive cybersecurity investigation. Revealing this information could also permit the record subject to obtain valuable insight concerning the information obtained during any investigation and to take measures to impede the investigation, e.g., destroy evidence or alter techniques to evade discovery. (2) From subsection (d)(1), (2), (3) and (4), (e)(4)(G) and (H), and (f) because these provisions concern individual access to and amendment of certain law enforcement and sensitive records, compliance of which could alert the subject of an authorized law enforcement activity about that particular activity and the interest of the DOJ, external federal agency subscribers, and/or other entities that are recipients of the disclosure. Providing access could compromise sensitive information, or reveal sensitive cybersecurity investigative techniques; provide information that would allow a subject to avoid detection; or constitute a potential danger to the health or safety of law enforcement personnel or confidential sources. (3) From subsection (e)(1) because it is not always possible to know in advance what information is relevant and necessary for law enforcement purposes. The relevance and utility of certain information that may have a nexus to cybersecurity threats may not always be fully evident until and unless it is vetted and matched with other information necessarily and lawfully maintained by the DOJ, external federal agency subscribers, or other entities. (4) From subsection (e)(4)(I), to the extent that this subsection is interpreted to require more detail regarding the record sources in this system than has been published in the Federal Register.

Introduction On July 22, 2021, the Postal Service filed a petition pursuant to 39 CFR 3050.11 requesting that the Commission initiate a rulemaking proceeding to consider changes to analytical principles relating to periodic reports.1 The Petition identifies the proposed analytical changes filed in this docket as Proposal Four. II. Proposal Four Background. The Postal Service currently develops the distribution factors used for the Special Purpose Route (SPR) city carrier cost pools based on manual data collection through the City Carrier Costing System SPR subsystem (CCCS–SPR). The Commission approved the use of this subsystem in Order No. 339, and it has been used each year since FY 2009.2 Proposal. With Proposal Four, the Postal Service seeks to replace the CCCS–SPR subsystem with a new system called the Special Purpose Carrier Cost System (SPCCS). The Postal Service cites two objectives for this new system: ‘‘to replace manual sampling with scan data from Product Tracking and Reporting (PTR) combined with the clock rings from the Time and Attendance Collection System (TACS)’’ and to ‘‘separate the weekday SPR cost pool into peak and non-peak pools and provide separate distribution factors for each cost pool.’’ Petition, Proposal Four at 2. With respect to the first objective, the Postal Service plans to use PTR delivery scans that occur within time blocks when a city carrier is clocked to Management Operating Data System (MODS) Operating Codes specific to Special Purpose Routes. Id. The Postal Service proposes to use a sample of time blocks ‘‘[d]ue to the disproportionate resources required to obtain a complete nationwide census.’’ Id. Regarding the second objective, the Postal Service proposes to disaggregate the volume variabilities used for the SPR Monday through Saturday cost pool in order to create separate non-peak and peak weekday SPR cost pools. Id. at 3. The Postal Service also proposes annual updates to the hours used to weight the new weekday non-peak SPR cost pool variabilities. Id. Impact. The impacts of Proposal Four are outlined in Table 1 of the proposal. 1 Petition of the United States Postal Service for the Initiation of a Proceeding to Consider Proposed Changes in Analytical Principles (Proposal Four), July 22, 2021 (Petition). 2 See Docket No. RM2009–10, Order on Analytical Principles Used in Periodic Reporting (Proposals Three through Nineteen), November 13, 2009 (Order No. 339); Petition, Proposal Four at 1. VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:28 Jul 29, 2021 Jkt 253001 Id. at 7. The most significant change in unit costs is a decrease of $0.1743 for Collect on Delivery Service. Id. The unit cost of USPS Marketing Mail Parcels would increase by $0.0151, from $0.238 to $0.254 per unit. Id. The unit cost for total domestic market dominant services would decrease by $0.0144 per unit. Id. III. Notice and Comment The Commission establishes Docket No. RM2021–7 for consideration of matters raised by the Petition. More information on the Petition may be accessed via the Commission’s website at http://www.prc.gov. Interested persons may submit comments on the Petition and Proposal Four no later than August 23, 2021. Pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 505, Manon Boudreault is designated as an officer of the Commission (Public Representative) to represent the interests of the general public in this proceeding. IV.

Initiation of a Proceeding to Consider Proposed Changes in 
Analytical Principles (Proposal Four), July 22, 2021 (Petition).

II. Proposal Four

    Background. The Postal Service currently develops the distribution 
factors used for the Special Purpose Route (SPR) city carrier cost 
pools based on manual data collection through the City Carrier Costing 
System SPR subsystem (CCCS-SPR). The Commission approved the use of 
this subsystem in Order No. 339, and it has been used each year since 
FY 2009.\2\

    \2\ See Docket No. RM2009-10, Order on Analytical Principles 
Used in Periodic Reporting (Proposals Three through Nineteen), 
November 13, 2009 (Order No. 339); Petition, Proposal Four at 1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Proposal. With Proposal Four, the Postal Service seeks to replace 
the CCCS-SPR subsystem with a new system called the Special Purpose 
Carrier Cost System (SPCCS). The Postal Service cites two objectives 
for this new system: ``to replace manual sampling with scan data from 
Product Tracking and Reporting (PTR) combined with the clock rings from 
the Time and Attendance Collection System (TACS)'' and to ``separate 
the weekday SPR cost pool into peak and non-peak pools and provide 
separate distribution factors for each cost pool.'' Petition, Proposal 
Four at 2.
    With respect to the first objective, the Postal Service plans to 
use PTR delivery scans that occur within time blocks when a city 
carrier is clocked to Management Operating Data System (MODS) Operating 
Codes specific to Special Purpose Routes. Id. The Postal Service 
proposes to use a sample of time blocks ``[d]ue to the disproportionate 
resources required to obtain a complete nationwide census.'' Id.
    Regarding the second objective, the Postal Service proposes to 
disaggregate the volume variabilities used for the SPR Monday through 
Saturday cost pool in order to create separate non-peak and peak 
weekday SPR cost pools. Id. at 3. The Postal Service also proposes 
annual updates to the hours used to weight the new weekday non-peak SPR 
cost pool variabilities. Id.
    Impact. The impacts of Proposal Four are outlined in Table 1 of the 
proposal. Id. at 7. The most significant change in unit costs is a 
decrease of $0.1743 for Collect on Delivery Service. Id. The unit cost 
of USPS Marketing Mail Parcels would increase by $0.0151, from $0.238 
to $0.254 per unit. Id. The unit cost for total domestic market 
dominant services would decrease by $0.0144 per unit. Id.
