The OIG Reports to Congress

Our Semiannual Report to Congress is a record of our work over a 6-month period that reflects our mission of ensuring efficiency, accountability, and integrity in the U.S. Postal Service. As required by law, we publish the SARC ÔÇô as we affectionately call it ÔÇô twice a year.

Conducive and Convenient CPUs

Location, location, location ÔÇô itÔÇÖs the mantra of realtors, of course, but is just as important to retailers and service providers, like the U.S. Postal Service.

Cue contract postal units (CPUs), which the Postal Service uses to supplement its 32,000 post offices around the country.

ThatÔÇÖs a tough situation under any circumstances, but factor in the continued growth of ecommerce, which is putting a greater number of trucks on the road, and that driver shortage is even more alarming.
