From House Subcommittee:
The Subcommittee on Federal Workforce, Postal Service, and the District of Columbia will hold an oversight hearing entitled “Making Sense of It All: An Examination of USPS’s Station and Branch Optimization Initiative and Delivery Route Adjustments” on Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. in room 2154 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
The Postal Service’s recently proposed “Station and Branch Optimization and Consolidation Initiative” is designed to identify and take advantage of increased efficiency by consolidating the operations of some retail stations and branches into nearby postal facilities. In light of this proposal, the upcoming hearing is intended to provide a detailed examination of the proposed initiative to include: the criteria USPS plans to use to guide its decisions; targeted savings; the timeline for implementation; and USPS’s communication efforts with stakeholders. The hearing will also explore related consolidation efforts such as USPS’s approach to delivery route adjustments.
