How can the Postal Service Improve In-Office Cost System Data?

The In-Office Cost System (IOCS) is the Postal Service’s primary probability sampling system used to distribute the labor costs of clerks, mail handlers, city carriers, and supervisors related to the handling of mail of all classes and rate categories. The data is used to distribute about $20 billion annually in volume-variable costs to mail products.
