Under the leadership of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, the Postal Service is developing a business plan to ensure that the organization will be financially stable and able to continue to provide reliable, affordable, safe and secure delivery of mail and packages to all customers.
This plan, which will be presented to the USPS Board of Governors when it is finalized, will include new, creative ways to help the organization fulfill its mission. The plan will also focus on the Postal Service’s strengths to maximize its prospects for long-term success.
In addition to developing a broader business plan, USPS is taking immediate steps to increase operational efficiency by re-emphasizing existing plans that have been designed to provide affordable, reliable service within existing service standards.
By running operations on time and on schedule, the organization aims to enhance its ability to be sustainable and to be able to continue to provide high-quality, affordable service.
Under federal law, the Postal Service is obligated to provide prompt, reliable and efficient service in a self-sustaining manner.
To meet this obligation, the organization’s management continually reviews its operational practices and makes adjustments as necessary. Any temporary service effects will be monitored and the root causes of any issues will be addressed and corrected as appropriate.
The Postmaster General said he has been very impressed with the dedication of USPS employees and their commitment to success.
“I believe there are tremendous opportunities available to us, and I am very optimistic that we can turn our business around and become financially healthy while remaining a vital part of the nation’s critical infrastructure,” DeJoy said.
