Abstract:

This study determined the type of postal organization which best meets the needs of the Army. Criteria for an effective Army postal organization were established the current organization was documented and an alternative organization was designed and tested. The study concluded that there was no compelling costbenefit basis for a vertical, Army-wide organization. Within major commands, however, the postal mission should be centralized, as in Europe. There is a considerable lack of managerial information within the postal function. The study recommended Development of a management information program for the Army postal system, a postal facilities and equipment study request that the eight US Army consider centralizing its postal operations under the Adjutant General, Eight Army.
