Schedule and Responsibilities
Each fall, the Postal ServiceTM joins other federal
agencies in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) drive. In accordance with
Office of Personnel Management (OPM) regulations, the campaign runs for
a 6-week period between September 1 and December 15, as established by
the Local Federal Coordinating Committee.
Vice presidents of Area Operations have campaign
responsibility. Area offices must ensure that campaign information is
disseminated to all offices in their jurisdiction.

Guidelines, October 1994, explains how to carry out a successful
campaign. The November 1998 update of Publication 530, which revised position
titles, facility locations, and dates of campaign, is available on the
