This article was taken from the latest PostCom Bulletin dated April 23, 2010. I found it interesting and wanted to share; it is titled “Big Brother Watching”:
According to Intelisent, “Full-Service Intelligent Mail USPS Release #4 is now slated for implementation November 2010. This release will be a “big-brother is watching – and charging – you” release. Intelligent Mail barcode Mail Quality reports will be beefed up, in order to support the USPS non-compliance revenue stream. Instead of looking at compliance issues as a way to improve the mailstream, the Postal Service is more focused on catching errors and charging for them – in most cases the loss of the tiny Intelligent Mail discount and Full-Service benefits for Full-Service Intelligent Mail users. This will make the risks associated with presenting Full-Service mailings all the more difficult to alleviate. The USPS will also be implementing reports designed to catch and charge those receiving Full Service “Free” ACS and then failing to update the addresses within the required time frame.”
