- Project Title:
- Fleet Specialty Card Management - Pacific Area
- Start Date:
- Monday, February 5, 2018
- Estimated Report Release Date:
- July 2018
The Postal Service operates one of the largest civilian vehicle fleets in the world with over 227,000 vehicles used to deliver and collect mail in Fiscal Year 2017. Management assigns a fleet credit card to each postal-owned vehicle to pay for commercially purchased fuel, oil, and maintenance expenses of up to $300.
In addition to these cards, USPS uses a fleet specialty credit card known as the Z credit card. This card is issued to each facility with assigned vehicles and to Vehicle Maintenance Facilities (VMF) to pay for maintenance or repairs over $300. The Z credit card can also be used to pay for fuel, vehicle washes, and towing for vehicles—services often provided by vendors.
We are currently assessing the effectiveness of controls over fleet specialty credit cards used for Pacific Area delivery operations and would like to hear from you.

- What are some innovative ways to monitor credit card transactions?
- How could the Postal Service improve its methods for verifying/validating multiple credit card transactions?
