Dear Alliance Members and Sponsors,
The Postal Regulatory Commission has demanded weekly service performance reports from USPS for June 1-September 4, by September 18, at the national, area, and district levels. Normally they only get quarterly data about a month after each quarter, the next in November 2020. The USPS objected but was overruled by the regulator. The PRC was responding to a request by an individual, Steve Hutkins, a retired English professor who runs the website: https://www.savethepostoffice.com/about/
The order: https://www.prc.gov/docs/114/114464/Order5671.pdf
The information request: https://www.prc.gov/docs/114/114465/CIR%20No.%203.pdf
Separately, the chair of the House oversight committee issued a subpoena to Postmaster General DeJoy for more detailed data on service performance.
On Monday, the Postal Service provided a letter and a slide deck with up-to-date service performance at the national level, and committed to weekly updates.
