Objective

This report responds to an August 7, 2020, congressional request regarding concerns that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s modifications to U.S. Postal Service staffing and policies had an adverse effect on Postal Service operations, leading to slower and less reliable mail delivery. This report also responds to a number of recent similar congressional requests. We are issuing a separate report to the Postmaster General which details these issues with recommendations for corrective action.

Our objective was to address specific concerns related to Postal Service changes put in place after the Postmaster General was sworn in on June 15, 2020, and their effect on operations; whether the changes comply with internal policies and legal requirements and sufficient notice was provided to Congress and customers; and whether the Postmaster General complied with ethical requirements.

The Postal Service is required to fulfill its universal service obligation and meet other statutory obligations in a self-sufficient manner by covering its costs through revenue generated from the sale of its products and services. Since 2007, the Postal Service has experienced sizeable financial losses, resulting from a combination of legislative and economic factors, as well as the shift in consumer and business behavior toward digital correspondence, transactions, and advertising. In its 2020 Integrated Financial Plan, the Postal Service projected a net loss of $7.6 billion for fiscal year (FY) 2020.

Unexpected at the time of these projections was the global novel coronavirus (COVID-19) disease outbreak. The effects of this pandemic are still being felt across the country and its impact on the Postal Service continues to be significant. While the Postal Service experienced a sizeable increase in package volume in the initial months following the emergency declaration, letter and flat mail volume has declined by up to 20 percent since the pandemic began in March 2020.

As we have noted in a series of reports, the Postal Service has struggled in recent years to meet mail service performance standards, which it measures based on mail speed and reliability. In FY 2019, it met annual performance targets for only seven of 22 mail products (32 percent). Our recent reports have also noted that the Postal Service has numerous opportunities for greater efficiencies and cost savings.

On May 6, 2020, the Postal Service’s Board of Governors announced its selection of Louis DeJoy to serve as the 75th Postmaster General. In his remarks at an August 7, 2020, Board of Governors meeting, Mr. DeJoy announced implementation of an organizational realignment and noted that the Postal Service’s financial position was dire, stemming from substantial declines in mail volume, a broken business model, and a management strategy that has not adequately addressed these issues. Given the current situation, he noted it was critical that the Postal Service review operations and make necessary adjustments.

Conclusion

In June and July 2020, Postal Service operations executives initiated various significant cost reduction strategies on top of three initiatives the Postmaster General launched to achieve financial targets. No analysis of the service impacts of these various changes was conducted and documentation and guidance to the field for these strategies was very limited and almost exclusively oral. The resulting confusion and inconsistency in operations at postal facilities compounded the significant negative service impacts across the country.

Although the Postal Service followed applicable legal and policy requirements regarding notification of the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC), these requirements are limited. We also found that documentation of the operational changes provided to Congress and customers was generally accurate but incomplete. Information the OIG reviewed to date indicates that Mr. DeJoy has met the ethics requirements related to disclosure, recusal, and divestment.

    I correspond with someone in the Ukraine. The past 2 years none of our packages or letters has reached each other. When inquiring at my post office.....I was led to believe unless I spent more money on trackable mail? The post office (because they are losing money) would not deliver the cheapest mail. I accuse the post office of fraud and not fulfilling their service duties! They are dumping mail to save money.

    I believe USPS is guilty of intentional fraud regarding classification of mail and packages, and expected time of delivery. Postal employees in various USPS facility locations in the USA report undelivered mail and packages piled up in facility and nothing being done to send mail and packages to recipients. This may be an attempt to express displeasure with DeJoy changes made in an attempt to mend insolvency and increase efficiency. The Covid-19 pandemic and the unauthorized mail-in ballots for November 2020 election affected implementation of corrective measures. This is unfortunate but should now be behind us for the most part. The United States Postal Service has a duty to American taxpayers and postal service consumers to perform explicit advertised shipping rates and expected delivery dates as a US shipping business that can be relied upon. Some may wish to federalize it totally which would be an economic disaster as well as putting USPS out of business, with loss of jobs and needed mail services in rural communities especially. Many depend on USPS for receiving medical prescriptions, especially the elderly. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF THIS URGENT MATTER FOR AMERICAN POSTAL SERVICE CONSUMERS. THANK YOU.

    So, I am a postal employee who has donr many things in my life that make me pretty well rounded, including getting a graduate degree. I was an officer in the Army , and then a manager in heavy manufacturing. Here is my take from only seeing a small part of the USPS. AMAZON is the main problem people! My delivery folks do not get paid for delivering anazon boxes, yet we have to daily...we are a small post office and we average 150 pkgs a day from amazon. First off why are we allowing amazon to have us deliver their packages and not pay or figure it into our drivers route times?!?!? If you have double the number of packages to now deliver, you have to take that into account when factoring in time and money....i know for a fact they did neither in my office....why? Another problem with us delivering amazons packages is that the packages we receive are well over the dimension of i believe it os 108 total inches. We get packages that are humongous and have never not taken one from them! If the postal service has a standard that it says it will not ship or deliver then why do we let amazon give them to us? Make anazon deliver the obes that d not meet our service standards! Also, if amazon is going to promise next day delivery thwn they need to pay the usps accordingly, or they should have to deliver them on their own! We shouldnt be responsible for amazon, or any company making a guarantee on time, they should deliver those if they make a guarantee. How do people higher up in the usps not see this!? Just at least stop tryng to let amazon run us....um, we run them if we r deliverng their packages!!! At least uphold our own standards! I also know that the person they have in charge of my office doesnt know we r suppsed to give a no fee box until we can get an address in the system (lots of jew cnsteuction here) she says that postal delivery is not for every address and tells patrons incorrect info often and beats me down verbally when i attempt to explain. Also, webbats should be able to pull reports that show physical addresses that the customer has. Its very time consumng to atteempt to deliver to po boxes when no po box on envelope....and i cant pull a report that shows what address they have physically in webbatts.....then again, maybe my postmaster is just wrong about that as well?

    Your mail volume is shrinking because of asinine policies like the one I'm facing currently. I've lived at my adress for 8 years now and have had no problem getting parcels delivered whether coming from USPS or commerical delivery. Now the mail delivery is saying they can't deliver parcels due to my driveway being too long and no three point area to turn around. (Mind you this wasn't a problem until we asked them to please quit turning around in our front yard due to heavy rains.) No mail delivery person we ever had tried to turn around in our yard until now. UPS and FedEx have absolutely no problems pulling in and delivering my parcels and backing out of my driveway (it is straight and flat in huge box trucks.) Your 50 foot reverse rule is a policy more than likely designed to safely drive in urban areas not rural areas; but alas our mail delivery claims he is held to that standard as well. So my options stand at putting a $1000 drop box at my road or picking up parcels at the post office 15 miles away. Or the simplest workaround is we will just not get packages through usps going forward. Simple enough.

    Seriously, lose the covid excuse. Then, find people who want to actually work and do their job correctly. The Greensboro Distribution facility is full of idiots. They hold packages for days and then ship them back to senders state. Clear out these fools and maybe packages will get to where they are supposed to go. Right now, I am missing two packages and go figure, the website is only half running. Cant do a help request for either package with no scan for 4 days. Oh, i paid extra for priority and thats wasted money. Bet the label still says "2-3 day" on it. Stop lying to people, before I stop using your service. You sure dont have a problem delivering food coupon ads to my mailbox and free magazines.

    During the 2020/2021 Holiday shipping season, USPS handled an unprecedented package volume. In certain cases, it appears that packages were sent on long journeys as the destination NDC was unable to accept them. Please review ways of improving surge capacity, even if the package cannot be processed immediately. Sending them cross-country, for no good reason, begs a reasonable explanation.

    You have to be kidding me, the reason you are going broke is your to busy giving free packaging materials away, with no incentive, further, you charge premium prices for priority mail, and tracking, and neither work. Pony express was faster than the current priority mail. You misrouted packages which defy logic, example, I live in Vermont, a friend mails me a package priority mail, from Connecticut, and it ends up being rerouted to Tampa Florida, but that’s all the mail. I waited 17 days for a package sent priority mail which was 500 miles away, I could have walked faster. You then have the nerve to offer tracking, and the whole system has collapsed and for weeks at a time your package is not scanned in, and you want to raise the rates this year. At this point your literally putting yourselves out of business. How about a business model that focuses on getting the job done right. No more excuses. Pony express was more efficient then what you have going on now. I’m tired of hearing excuses, that’s all they are. You all ought to be ashamed of what you have done to the United States Postal Service. I know I speak for millions of angry customers that are being offered services, you can’t promise. It’s the worst kind of false advertising. I am currently looking for a more expedient way to do business. Good Luck

    Overnight your stuff. It's the only way your packages will arrive on time within that month. Get tracking too. Anything overnighted can be tracked using the usps highly skilled and trained migratory geese. If the geese cannot locate your package in a timely manner, the usps has partnered with SANTA TRACKER to finally nail down the whereabouts of your stuff. Good luck. You're gonna need it!

    I think the USPS would be better off without the one they have running it now,so called logistics expert,they have failed at every level since he took over,Christmas next year will be here before any of my packages will at this point.Sitting in facilities for 6 days without moving taking 80% longer,absolutely uncalled for,before he took over everything was on time every time,now delayed by several weeks.

    Why does it take so long to have mailed delivered. Sent first class to a town that is 20 miles away and another one that is 1000 miles away a full week ago and neither has been delivered.

    USPS is nothing but a joke. Ridiculous rates, most things I order cost more for shipping than the actual item. On top of that they lose or delay everything for weeks. Out of the last 10 things I've ordered only a couple have made it in a reasonable time. Currently I'm waiting 8 days for a package coming from 3 hours away. It left the original post office and has been "in transit, arriving late" since. 3 of my packages vanished and opening a case does absolutely nothing. I've opened several cases which are routed to my local post office who never received the item, they immediately close it saying they can't do anything. Nobody there seems to give a damn and it's a coin toss if I order anything online. I'm done ordering anything that uses this sorry system.

    Well I think I have the best complaint. I live 1/2 mile from PO. It’s a small town. We must pay for PO Box and the price goes up every year, almost $30 every 6 mos. I live in the US why must I pay for my mail. So then instructed to put mailbox in sidewalk. Not digging up sidewalk. Put mailbox into milk can in front of home. Now instructed wrong side of road??? Now if you live 10 to 50 miles away FREE delivery. So Backwards, let’s pay for gas, ruin environment, car ins, car maintenance it’s cheaper than my 1/2 mile delivery. This was set up in 1902 or around there. Maybe it’s time to change how things work. Financially stupid!

    None of your info makes sense. The usps offers a service of free delivery for items sent in their system as long as you provide a delivery box in a safe approved area. The box is on the other side of the road because you apparently have box on post delivery in your area and the carrier delivers in a straight line of travel on that side of the road for their route travel. It doesn’t have to be an official mail box yes it can be a basket on a post for all we care you are just responsible for providing the receptacle! All across America mailboxes are in edge of side wall for box on post delivery your entire complaint defies logic.

    I sell on ebay and my customers have been contacting me that they are not getting their packages. Everything I ship out goes Priority Mail and the rates are not cheap. I am not paying the shipping rates, the customer is. I have been watching the tracking and all I every see is item is in transit. It leaves my house one day and is not delivered for another 19-20 days. My customers get upset and I don't know what to tell them as I don't even know where the package is. I have the date and time it left my house but then who knows where it is. My husband has gone to our local post office in Grand Haven, MI a few times to try to track down some of the items I sold on December 2 and all they say is "it is in transit." I just don't understand what is going on. I know this is a busy time of the year but this is almost ridiculous. I know the postal carriers around here are working hard but that is a long time to be "in transit". What is going on? I am going to loose all of my customers!!!

    The post office is now using covid as an excuse for packages for Christmas being stuck at distribution centers and, in my case, even being misrouted to the wrong places. I've had two packages arrive at my local Post Office and then go to the wrong place. This has NOTHING to do with Covid. This has to do with corrupt Louis DeJoy purposely destroying the postal service from the inside. Ripping out sorting machines that the taxpaper paid for, ending shifts for postal workers. He's doing everything he can, with the support of the Republicans, to ensure that his personal investments in private delivery companies pay off. It's corrupt, unethical, and immoral. Everything swampy and Trumpian. So many holiday gifts aren't going to arrive on time despite the hard efforts of postal workers who have always been great. DeJoy is doing exactly what he was assigned to do, destroy the postal service. Disgusting.

    I purchased a CD online as a Christmas gift. Sent from Louisville, KY 12/2/20 then to Indianapolis IN 12/3/20 and on to Detroit on 12/4/20. Still sitting in Detroit as of today, 12/18/20. NO ASSISTANCE FROM U.S.P.S. via email, phone, or local PO. Any responses related to COVID and local PO says Detroit is back-logged from mid-November. I know this is a lie because I've ordered items via USPS more recently and have received them in about a week plus regular mail (including Christmas cards which are not mailed mid-November). No one is responsible for accountability. All jobs I've had in my lifetime REQUIRED accountability so why not you?

    It appears that Mr. Dejoy has managed to almost completely destroy the functionality of the US Postal Service in very short order. Why has this been allowed? It used to work great, and hey folks, we're ALL dealing with COVID 19, let's try to at least get mail delivered in a reasonable amount of time. It's almost as if Dejoy was put in place specifically for the purpose of destroying the USPS, an action from which he would also reap a great financial advantage. Let's get someone who's actually competent in place, or at least someone who genuinely wants the system to work, this has become a very, very, bad joke.

    In my opinion the mail service has always been slow. I mailed a box for Christmas to AZ from MO on 12/08/2020 and as of today, 12/18/2020, it still has not arrived there. It's so sad they try to use COVID19 as a lame excuse for the slow mail delivery when this was a problem long before then. From now on I plan to use FedEx to mail my packages. Seems they're more reliable and have integrity. The USPS is an embarrassment and total disgrace to the USA. You know, with the advancement in technology these days being able to do most everything online, through Skype, Facetime and Amazon (which has definitely been a lifesaver), I really don't see where we even need the postal service anymore.

    When it costs you twenty dollars to send a letter to someone, that's when you'll remember why we need the USPS. Small businesses rely on the USPS, because unlike billionaire owned companies like Amazon, we can't dictate to UPS/FedEx what we're willing to pay for shipping a package. It is NOT THEIR FAULT that deliveries this year are a disaster. You can blame that on President Jazz Hands nominee, Dejoy, and the senate REPUBLICANS who confirmed him. Please remember that next time you vote!!!

    I retired as a Letter Carrier with 33 years of continuous service in upstate South Carolina. I have never before witnessed the current level of inadequate service. We have a package that according to the Informed Delivery tracking was to be delivered on 4 December after arriving in Greenville, SC ( distribution hub for our area ) on 3 December. To date we have not received this package nor has there been any update on the tracking system. Our Letter Carrier tells me he is frustrated because when he relays the concerns of numbers of his patron who are experiencing the same issues, it falls on deaf ears. The "Virus" is the excuse given for everything. Greenville is 30 miles from our local Post Office and the truck run three times a day on normal schedule. How can it possibly be explained why a package sits in that office for ten days after being scanned as received there?? On top of that, my son has the same issue with two packages scanned received in Greenville on 24 November. We have called, filled out the complaint form, received the boiler plate response letter, waited on the phone for 30 plus minutes before giving up reaching a person on the 800 number provided. The message now state wait time will be an hour or more. What is going on?

    "Seems the Post office should go private to run efficiently" THAT'S EXACTLY what the republicans want people to think & say. That's why they've been systematically trying to dismantle & defund the postal system now for the last 20 odd years. Dejoy is just the latest monkey wrench thrown into the gears of our federal postal system originally set up by founding father Benjamin Franklin. Can you imagine a company being forced by the government to FULLY FUND their employees retirement & healthcare for 75 years into the future? NOBODY DOES THAT!!! Well, the 2006 house, senate, & president (all republican) passed a bill that did just that to the USPS. It was designed to be a "poison pill" in their accounting, in order to bankrupt them or force the postal union to dissolve. Please remember that the next time you vote!!!

    Postal service out of El Dorado Hills, CA post office (95762) WORST I have ever experienced, shared by all in the area! Total incompetence from top - down requiring a thorough clean-house approach; most recent was a "certified mail" pkg from Social Security Administration in Placerville, CA scheduled for delivery 11/27/20 - DID NOT HAPPEN!!! Received e-mail from USPS dated 11/27/20 @ 11:05 PM stating "Attempted delivery" on 11/27/20 @ 7:10 PM and pkg is being held at EDH P.O. "at request of customer" - TOTAL LIE and COMPLETE FABRICATION on the part of the carrier who should be fired immediately, subject to Federal prosecution. And you wonder why the USPS is always in the "red"??!! ANY further Federal financial assistance to the USPS would be a waste, throwing good taxpayer dollars after bad! Most will willingly pay extra to utilize competent services of FedEx, UPS, etc. for shipments, when ever possible, rather than rely on the ineptitude of USPS!

    This is what happens after 20 years of the republicans defunding the post office. Dejoy is only the lastest monkey wrench thrown into the USPS gears by republicans. This is a typical Republican tactic. Defund and/or cripple a given government agency that they don't like, then bitch that it doesn't work as if it wasn't their fault. Other examples of that include the ATF (not allowed to keep any tracking data of guns on any computers, making them useless). Can you imagine any business being forced (by our government) to FULLY FUND their employee's retirement for 75 years in advanced? NOBODY DOES THAT!!! Well in 2006 the REPUBLICAN house, senate, & president did just that. It nearly broke the USPS, and they're still paying off the federal loans to this day. That's right, they are actually having to pay retirement funds for PEOPLE THAT HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN BORN YET!!! This is why half of USPS employees are temps, and not union employees. That's also why your mail is getting lost, missdelivered, and stolen. Temps don't care about the job like a union employee does, as they get zero benefits and can be fired on a whim. PLEASE REMEMBER THIS FACT NEXT TIME YOU VOTE!!!
