Abstract:

Each of the military services operates a postal system to provide for the dispatch and receipt of military official and personal mail in areas where the United States Postal Service does not operate. The Military Postal System MPS is a highly visible function, so that when it is perceived to be operating inefficiently, complaints are made to high DoD officials and members of Congress. A review of the MPS revealed that the Services are meeting their assigned postal responsibilities and, though improvements are needed, the potential for savings is modest. The major findings indicate 1 Gateway city operations could be streamlined 2 The Services should establish a single postal manual 3 Operating costs are not a function of organization and 4 Reorganization is not necessary to correct existing problems. Recommendations for action on the above findings are included.
