Exigent Rate Case – Early USPS Increase Misfire?

The Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers comments on the third anniversary of the last failed USPS exigent rate case of 2010-11.  The current rumor is the USPS is considering filing for a rate increase as soon as July with a September/October implementation. Again, this is a rumor at the moment.

To file an exigent change requires the USPS to show it meets the exception that allows the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to approve above- Consumer Price Index rate increases when reasonable, equitable and necessary for the USPS to continue providing necessary postal services after suffering losses that are “due to . . . extraordinary or exceptional circumstances.”

Loss of volume alone is not sufficient to ask for the exception. The PRC agreed with this and other causal reasons when denying the last request.

If an exigent case is filed, all mailers should be concerned about the apportioned costs associated with their mail. Periodicals and Standard mail stand to see the highest increases in relation to their calculated contribution to cost. If the USPS believes periodicals underpay by 15%+, the proposed increases will target the least efficient segments of Periodicals mail. Same with Standard segments considered to be under-paying the allocated share.

We will keep readers informed of developments as they occur. In all cases, highlighting rumor from actual deliberations maintains a professional industry dialogue.

  1. Kate Bosworth og Isabel MarantWhen en kjendis elsker en designer, noen ganger de virkelig elsker dem. Case in point: Kate Bosworth og Isabel Marant, som går sammen som oss og lister om mote. Enten iført skinnankelstøvletter eller Marant høye topp plattform joggesko (som Kelly Oxford ofte hadde på seg, også), Bosworth fløy Marant flagg høyt, noe som gjør det overraskende at skuespilleren har ikke landet en kampanje med designeren ennå.

  5. Veline, sciocchine ed eterne bambine che fino a tarda et脿 si preoccupano solo di giocare a sedurre con spacchi, pizzi e trasparenze, possono finalmente andare in pensione. Miuccia Prada ha aggiunto un formidabile capitolo di moda a La mistica della femminilit脿, testo base del movimento di liberazione della donna scritto nel 1963 dalla grande Betty Friedan recentemente scomparsa. Ho fatto una collezione politically scorrect che esprime forza, potenza ed energia: l’opposto di quel modello femminile passivo e quieto purtroppo dominante nella nostra societ脿, ha detto la stilista poco prima di una sfilata indimenticabile perch茅 oltre alla grande triade di eleganza, stile e modernit脿 aveva il pregio di risvegliare nelle coscienze un sano orgoglio femminile. Non dico che si possa far politica con i vestiti ha concluso Miuccia ma le donne hanno abbassato troppo la guardia, rischiano di perdere credibilit脿 continuando a nascondere il loro lato guerriero sotto ai fragili costumi da vera signora.
