From Federal Business Opportunities:

THIS REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ONLY-  The United States Postal Service (USPS) is seeking information regarding the potential for strategic partnerships to provide a modular kiosk solution capable of printing postage-on-demand, dispensing/vending postal products, supporting shipping and mailing functions, and providing supplemental or complementary services (government or non-government). The USPS needs to understand the feasibility of strategic partnerships to provide this solution in an attempt to expand our alternative access capabilities, provide ease of use for postal customers, and provide self-service options during and after normal retail operations. In addition, the USPS needs to understand the ability of providers within the market to fully support this solution (deploy, maintain, stock, and support) at no cost to the USPS

  2. Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! One more attempt to privatize more of the window services. Will the “Machine ask “Is anything inside liquid, perishable, fragile, or hazardous?'” Of course not.

  6. I don’t understand why they don’t include an ATM feature of dispersing cash via customers bank accounts like those ATM’s that are every where now.

    If customer needs stamps and cash having all features in one machine would save customer time and generate revenue via an ATM fee (as are on all existing ATMs).

    Phone Cards and Money Orders should also be included in these new machines.

  10. Machines don’t file grievances or bang in sick or complain about lousy working conditions or slow down or backstab their fellow union “brothers” or steal time and money from the company.
