ACS Data Issues from USPS

without comments

From PostalOne

PostalOne!® Release 39.0 Issue – An issue was discovered with  Release 39.0 that affects Full-Service mailers using ACS.  Specifically, the system was not populating the new city field in Full-Service ACS reports returned to mailers between November 30, 2014 and December  4, 2014.

This issue was resolved on December 5 and complete records will be resent to affected mailers between December 11 and 16, 2014.

——————–
Address Correction data instability and the lack of timely communication on issues is starting to become a real issue – especially when mailers are facing Move Update compliance penalties in 2015.  In order to charge, the data has to be good, – and reliable – consistently.

Senate gridlock freezes Postal Service board | TheHill

without comments

The U.S. Postal Service says it can overcome rain, sleet and heat, but that apparently doesn’t account for Senate gridlock.

The agency’s board of governors lost its quorum this week, with the Senate so far not taking action on six separate nominees to the body that oversees USPS’s budget and makes long-term plans for the service.

Lawmakers and aides say they hope that the Senate will confirm at least some of the nominees before Congress breaks for the year in the coming days. But both aides and lawmakers say there’s no guarantee that will happen, and business interests are also worried that the lack of a quorum could be disruptive for an agency that has lost billions of dollars in recent years.
