The U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General is hosting Postal 360 - a discussion forum designed to explore essential aspects of the Postal Service and its operations.

Read the recap of the forum

The three themes of this event will be service, cost, and pricing. The service module will examine how the Postal Service's performance standards have changed over the last decade, whether the measuring of those standards is adequate, and what kind of service changes mailers are requesting. On cost, the Postal Service's product unit costs have changed dramatically since PAEA was passed in 2006. We will explore what factors may be driving these changes. Finally, the pricing module will discuss the question: Where next for postal pricing? Panelists from different stakeholder groups will bring their perspectives to all of these cornerstone issues and attendees are encouraged to contribute to the discussion. Please join us!
