Postal Rate Changes
Document Number: 2010-17056
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-07-14
Agency: Postal Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
Under a 2006 postal reform law, a new approach to implementing rate changes for market dominant postal products, which include First- Class Mail, was adopted. In general, the new approach envisions annual rate adjustments based on changes in a specified Consumer Price Index (CPI). However, the law includes a provision allowing rate changes in excess of CPI under extraordinary or exceptional circumstances, contingent on a Commission determination on certain considerations. The Postal Service is invoking this provision for the first time and, in a filing with the Commission, is seeking an overall percentage increase of about 5.6 percent for market dominant products beginning January 2, 2011. It is also seeking some classification changes. This document provides the public with notice of the Postal Service's filing, a brief description of the contents, a discussion of the Commission's role and responsibilities, and an outline of related procedural steps.

Periodic Reporting
Document Number: 2010-16531
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-07-08
Agency: Postal Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commission is establishing a docket to consider a proposed change in certain analytical methods used in periodic reporting. This action responds to a Postal Service rulemaking petition. The proposed change has two parts. One part would reduce the sample size of a major ongoing data collection effort. The other part would divert a designated percentage of sample tests to a special study using an alternative sample frame. Establishing this docket will allow the Commission to consider the Postal Service's proposal and comments from the public.

Service Performance Measurement
Document Number: 2010-16178
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-07-06
Agency: Postal Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Commission is adopting a final rule on service perfomance measurement and customer satisfaction. The final rule reflects the Commission's consideration of comments on a proposed rule. Adoption of the final rule helps give effect to provisions in a 2006 federal law which, among other things, sought to increase Postal Service accountability. The Commission recognizes that exceptions from, and temporary waivers of, some reporting requirements may be appropriate. The discussion makes clear that these matters may be pursued in separate follow-up rulemakings initiated by the Postal Service.
