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.

State of the USPS Financial Condition

State of the U.S. Postal Service’s Financial Condition

Project start date
Estimated release

The U.S. Postal Service projected in its initial Delivering for America Plan (DFA) that its revenue would cover its controllable expenses starting in FY 2023 and have positive net income by FY 2024. Rather, the Postal Service lost from its operations, $950 million in FY 2022 and $7.0 billion in FY 2023. This audit will examine the Postal Service current financial condition compared to it DFA projections and consider what contributed to those variances in FY 2022 and 2023, the assumptions the Postal Service used to make its DFA projections, and how these variances and actual results may impact the Postal Service’s future financials.
