We identified deficiencies in one of the four areas we reviewed that affected the efficiency of operations at the Columbus P&DC.

We performed a self-initiated audit at the Columbus, OH, Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) and three delivery units serviced by the P&DC during the week of January 10, 2022. The delivery units included the Lewis Center Main Post Office, and the East City Annex and South Columbus Stations and in Columbus, OH.

We issued individual reports for the three delivery units and the P&DC we visited. We also issued another report summarizing the results of our audits at all three delivery units with specific recommendations for management to address.
