United States Postal Service®

Quarterly Performance for Special Services
Mailpieces Delivered Between 10/01/2016 and 12/31/2016

Quarter I
FY2017

Overview

In FY 2017 Quarter 1, service performance was measured for the following Special Services: Delivery Services (which is a composite of USPS Tracking®, Signature Confirmation™, Certified Mail®, Electronic Return Receipt, Registered Mail™, and Collect on Delivery), Post Office™ Box Service, Address Correction Service, Insurance Claims, Money Order Inquiry, and Address List Services. Customers' service expectations vary based on the Special Service; therefore no single service performance methodology is used for all products.

For Delivery Services, the elapsed time from barcode scan at delivery to the time the delivery information is available to customers is compared against the service standard.

Post Office™ Box Service is measured by comparing the availability of mail delivered to a P.O. Box™ section to the posted "uptime", the time of day when customers can expect to collect the mail from their P.O. Box™.

For automated Address Correction, the elapsed time from when data are transmitted to ACS to when data are forwarded to participants is compared against the service standard.

For Insurance Claims, the time in days from the date when all information is available for claims processing resolution to the date USPS® transmits a resolution to the customer is compared against the service standard.

For Money Order Inquiries, the time in days from the date when the customer purchases the inquiry service to the date a customer response is sent is compared against the service standard.

For Address List Services, the time in days from the date when customers request an address list service to the transmission of the corrected address information to the customer is compared against the service standard.

Service performance for Delivery Services and Post Office™ Box Service is reported quarterly by postal district. Automated Address Correction, Insurance Claims, Money Order Inquiries, and Address List Services each use a national, or centralized, system; thus, service performance is reported at a national level.
