Related Reporting Requirements

The U.S. Postal Service is among the most transparent organizations in the world. Legislation and regulation require the USPS to disclose operational and financial information beyond that demanded of federal government agencies and private sector companies.

The Postal Service is not a reporting company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act), as amended, and is not subject to regulation by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). However, it is required under P.L. 109-435 to file with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) certain financial reports containing information prescribed by the SEC under Section 13 of the Exchange Act. These reports include annual reports on Form 10-K (which are audited by an Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm), quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K. These reports are available at

Title 39 of the United States Code and the PRC mandate further disclosures of the Postal Service, its operations and finances. These requirements include Cost and Revenue Analysis, Revenue, Pieces and Weight reports and financial and strategic plans. These disclosures are reviewed by the PRC but are outside the scope of our Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm. These can be found online at

We make available on our website, free of charge, electronic copies of our recent annual, quarterly and current reports filed on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and
8-K, respectively, as soon as reasonably practicable after they are filed with or provided to the PRC. Requests for copies may also be sent to the following address:
