  • 12. Thoughts on the USPS News • The USPS needs help due to drastic decreases in mail volumes. This will continue as we all mail less in the future. • Continual pressure about pre-funding pensions and health benefits. • Limited control to increase rates: – Consumer Price Index – Exigent Increases • Need the flexibility to increase rates or decrease service levels. • Decent oversight with Inspector General, Board of Governors, Rate commissions, Oversight industry groups, dedicated postal employees, Congress, media, general public. • USPS uses these levers to gain publicity to their plight and to fight for assistance or flexibility. • We have the lowest postal rates in the world with the largest postal service. • Our Postal Service is one of the most trusted federal institutions. • The media news will minimize over time and the USPS will maintain service levels.
