USPS now targets November 2016 for automated Full-Service IMb assessments


The United Stated Postal Service is now targeting November to begin automated Full-Service assessments. This means that the data from the October Mailers Scorecard will drive the assessment process.

To learn more about the assessment process, visit the USPS website to review the Publication for Streamlined Mail Acceptance for Letters and Flats.

Fairrington has been working with clients to improve mail quality as the industry has marched toward assessment dates. Items we most often see of concern are correctly identifying the mail owner to meet the by/for requirements and piece level barcode uniqueness.

If you have questions on the process or would like to learn more, contact Paula Stoskopf.
