Presidents Commission on the United States Postal Service
1120 Vermont Avenue, suite 971Washington, DC 20005
July 31, 2003The PresidentThe White House1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NWWashington, DC 20500-0001Dear Mr. President:It is our honor to submit to you the final report of the President’s Commission on the United States PostalService. Much has changed since the nation last revisited its mail system in 1970, most notably the rise of the Internet as a faster and more affordable communications alternative. We appreciate the opportunity towork with the Postal Service and the entire postal community to strengthen this vital institution at a pivotalmoment in its history.In appointing this Commission, you recognized that the Postal Service faces significant challenges to its fiscalhealth due largely to an outdated and inflexible business model amid a rapidly changing postal landscape.Having explored in detail the many challenges and opportunities before the Postal Service, the Commissionwholeheartedly shares your concerns. However, we are decidedly optimistic about the future of this uniqueand venerable American institution.We believe that the Postal Service has an extraordinary opportunity to usher in an exciting new era of greaterefficiency and rising value to the mailing public. As a result, while the sustainability of the Postal Servicescurrent business model is in serious doubt, with bold leadership today, the future of universal postal servicecan most certainly be secured.Our recommendations aim to tailor the Postal Service to the modern mail needs of the country and focus theinstitution on “best execution” in all aspects of its operations. It is our hope that a revitalized 21
st
centuryPostal Service—one that makes best use of every resource it has and takes full advantage of private-sectorpartnerships and new technologies—can serve as a prime example of how to enhance the quality and cost-effectiveness of operations throughout the Federal government.Finally, Mr. President, we are not only proud of this report for the scope and ambition of its recommenda-tions, but also for the process that produced it. Numerous public meetings were held across the country.The Commission heard and read statements from hundreds of postal employees, customers, partners, andexperts. At every turn, we encouraged and received an open and frank exchange of ideas and opinions. Thisreport was substantially enriched for this broad participation. If the widespread public commitment tomaking this a constructive process is any indication, then the future of the Postal Service and the mail willindeed be bright.Sincerely,James A. JohnsonHarry J.
