IT Administration Policy


Policy Owner: Manager, IT Performance Achievement

Note: An owner must be a PCES-level manager or higher.

This policy provides formally documented management expectations and intentions.


The purpose of this policy is to ensure that all Postal Service personnel within the Information Technology (IT) organization are aware of and adhere to the internal administrative standards and standards that govern IT.


This policy applies to all Postal Service personnel and contracted vendors within the IT organization.


All IT personnel must adhere to the internal administrative processes and standards that govern the IT organization. These standards are unique to IT and have been established in support of Postal Service policies and processes. IT administrative processes and standards are documented in the ASM 13 - Administrative Support Manual. This guide addresses operations that are unique to IT, and it does not supersede any policy or process of the U.S. Postal Service.
