More details of USPS organizational realignment

Memo from the PMG to USPS executives:

August 7, 2020

OFFICERS

SUBJECT. Organizational Restructure

Our mission continues to be to serve the American people and, through the universal service obligation, bind our nation together by maintaining and operating our unique, vital, and resilient infrastructure.

To complete this mission successfully we must operate in an efficient and effective manner.

A crucial component of effectiveness is having organizational alignment in support of our mission and strategy. Our new organizational structure will align functions based on core business operations and will provide more clarity and focus on what we do best collect, process, move, and deliver mail and packages.

Our new structure will focus around three operating units. 

  1. Retail and Delivery Operations – Basic Mission: Accept and deliver mail and packages efficiently with a high level of customer satisfaction, 
  2. Logistics and Processing Operations – Basic Mission: Process and move mail and packages efficiently to the delivery units, meeting determined standards, and 
  3. Commerce and Business Solutions – Basic Mission: Leverage infrastructure to enable growth.

Administrative support functions will have centralized reporting relationships into the corresponding headquarters organizations. These administrative support functions will continue to serve operations in a matrix structure with a dotted line relationship to the field to ensure continued and focused support.

These organizational changes will improve line of sight by creating linear scope for core business operations and administrative support functions enabling us to capture efficiencies. In that regard, this new structure will provide economies of scale that will allow us to reduce our cost base and capture new revenue.

To prepare for these future changes we will immediately implement an EAS and executive hiring freeze and will be requesting Voluntary Early Retirement Authority from the Office of Personnel Management for non-bargaining employees. These organizational changes do not initiate a reduction-in-force, and there are no immediate employee impacts.

The following outlines job roles and organizations in our future state. Over the next several weeks we will transition into this new organizational structure. Transition coordinators have been identified to aid in this change Your immediate manager will address any specific changes with you. In the interim, continue to do what you do to deliver value to our customers.

Any function not referenced here will remain unchanged for the time being,
