WebMODS Cost Allocation Cover

U.S. Postal Service WebMODS Cost Allocation

Project start date
Estimated release

The Management Operating Data System (MODS) uses a systematic approach to gather, store, and report data on workload, work hours, and machine utilization. MODS data is compiled in the Web-based application Web Management Operating Data System (WebMODS). WebMODS collects work hour data from the Time and Attendance Collection System (TACS) and workload and machine utilization data from the Web End-of-Run (WebEOR) system. This data is used by the Postal Service to perform key functions for the cost development process and calculate productivities for mail processing operations. Our objective is to assess the impact of WebMODS data on Postal Service costing.

Network Modernization Role of the Postmaster Cover

Network Modernization: Role of the Postmaster

Project start date
Estimated release

The Postal Service has begun modernizing aspects of its retail network as part of its Delivering for America 10-Year Plan. It is moving carrier operations out from select facilities (spoke post offices) into nearby Sorting and Delivery Centers (S&DC) (hub post offices). These moves will impact postmaster’s day-to-day workload at spoke and hub offices. As more S&DCs will be implemented nationwide, the Postal Service will need to establish, communicate, and manage new postmaster workloads and roles. Our objective is to review the changing role of the postmaster in offices impacted by the implementation of S&DCs.

Fleet Modernization Incentives Cover

Fleet Modernization – Electric Vehicle & Charging Infrastructure Incentives

Project start date
Estimated release

The Postal Service is investing $9.6 billion to install modern charging infrastructure at hundreds of facilities; electrify delivery vehicles; and modernize mail delivery by creating an efficient network to reach its 163 million delivery locations across the country and strengthen the sustainability of its critical public service. As $3 billion of this investment stems from congressional funding, it is essential for the Postal Service to capture cost-savings. Our objective is to determine if the Postal Service is participating in incentive programs related to its electric vehicles and requisite charging infrastructure. If not, identify opportunities for participation and associated cost savings.
