University Mail Center Announces New USPS Rates

New USPS Rates Effective May 14, 2007

On March 19, 2007, the Governors of the U.S. Postal Service approved the Opinion and Recommended Decision of the Postal Regulatory Commission in R2006-1. These rates go into effect at 12:01AM on Monday, May 14, 2007.

In its decision, the Governors delayed the implantation of new prices for Periodicals until July 15, 2007.  The Governors also asked the Commission to reconsider its rate recommendations for Standard Mail® flats, the Non-Machinable Surcharge for Single-Piece First-Class Mail® letters and the Priority Mail® Flat-Rate Box. Because the Governors requested reconsideration of these rate recommendations, future changes in the rates are possible.
