Move Update – Form 6014

without comments

There was a comment made on an earlier blog post regarding USPS information on Form 6014.  Form 6014 is the USPS “Certification of Move Update Compliance” Form.  There are some great new resources at the revamped RIBBS site here:  http://ribbs.usps.gov/index.cfm?page=moveupdate. Included here under the Important Links heading are links to the Move Update Mailer Advisement Policy, Form 6014 itself, articles, and FAQs – with some specific FAQs dealing with the Form 6014 itself.

I am participating on MTAC Work Group #127, Redesigning Form 6014.  One of our efforts will center around a companion instruction sheet to go along with the form, to help guide folks as to how to use the form in the field.  If you have questions and/or suggestions as to how to improve the Form 6014, please do not hesitate to contact me, I will be sure to represent your concerns to this group.

Consumer Price Index Update – DMM Advisory

without comments

From today’s DMM Advisory, there is a link to information in relation to a CPI Update.  The CPI will give mailers an indication of the potential average price change for mailing services.  The Postal Regulatory Commission web site here www.prc.gov provides the most current price cap. The current calculation utilizes CPI data through November.  Mailing Servcies price adjustments due in May ’09 will likely reflect CPI data through December.

New prices will be announced in February ’09.

Note:  Be sure to visit the Dead Tree Edition blog for some great commentary on predicting the cap –
