It’s Electric: Developing the Postal Service Fleet of the Future
On April 5, 2022, Inspector General (IG) Tammy L. Whitcomb testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. IG Whitcomb's opening statement focused on the Postal Service's planned acquisition of the Next Generation Delivery Vehicle (NGDV) to replace its aging fleet of delivery vehicles. She specifically cited findings from a recent OIG white paper and an audit report on the subject. The white paper identified opportunities and challenges of using electric delivery vehicles. The audit report evaluated the strength of the contract with the NGDV manufacturer to mitigate fraud, waste, or abuse.
