UAA Challenge a Decade Later | USPS Office of Inspector General

with one comment

Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to reduce undeliverable as addressed (UAA) mail by 50 percent. Okay, those weren’t the exact words, but that was the challenge put forward 10 years ago by then-Postmaster General Jack Potter.

At that time UAA mail –  undeliverable because of an incomplete, illegible, or incorrect address – totaled more than 10 billion pieces, costing the Postal Service $2 billion annually because it must be forwarded, returned, or treated as waste.

Where are we today? Well, progress has been made, but not quite enough to hit the goal. In fiscal year 2014, UAA mail was 6.6 billion pieces and cost the Postal Service $1.5 billion.
