Move Update Validation Invoices – April 2015

In August 2014,the Postal Service began utilizing Mail Processing Equipment MPE scans and electronic documentation eDoc data to measure Move Update quality on mailers who submit 75% or more of their eligible volume as Full-Service.

Full-Service mailers will begin to see the results of this verification on the Mailer Scorecard to provide the opportunity to start reviewing results and to make any necessary adjustments to avoid additional postage charges.

In January 2015,the postage assessment calculations invoice generated will be For Review Only for Move Update quality. In April 2015,mailers will be charged for Move Update errors for Move Update verification failures over the threshold.
