• Project Title:
  • Western Area P&DC Site Security Controls
  • Start Date:
  • Tuesday, September 26, 2017
  • Estimated Report Release Date:
  • March 2018

The U.S. Postal Service information technology infrastructure consists of facilities, equipment, services, protocols, and applications used to transmit, store, and process information. Protection of these assets are vital to business performance.

The Postal Service protects its information resources by implementing site security controls designed to reduce the risk of physical failure of infrastructure components and damage from environmental hazards. The risks to information technology (including portable and wireless information resources) security and to infrastructure integrity are contingent upon strong site security controls. These controls include:

  • Unauthorized access controls,
  • Physical protection of information resources,
  • Environmental protection controls, and
  • Operation continuity planning

1. Are you aware of any physical or environmental security incidents at the Denver P&DC?

2. Do you have any concerns relating to the physical and environmental controls at the Denver P&DC?

3. In your opinion, what is the biggest strength or weakness in the physical and environmental controls at Postal Service facilities?

    Please accept my apologies for not responding sooner. I spoke to my audit team about your torn mail. Not knowing your location or more information about the condition of your mail, we suggest you contact your local post office and, more specifically, contact the post master or the highest functional position you can find. Mail can become torn at several points in the mail stream, in the mailbox/slot where you mailed the letter/card, in the mail processing machine(s), even by your mail carrier. Once you contact someone at your local post office, you can establish a good working relationship. As far as we know, the Postal Service does not maintain a customer service phone line for torn mail. We hope this helps.

    This seems to be a long process.
