The U.S. Postal Service® has awarded contracts to a number of suppliers to provide parts and equipment commonly used in its operations. These contracts include provisions that allow prime suppliers or Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to directly order parts and equipment at prices leveraged by the Postal Service™.
To promote standardization and reduce costs in the supply chain, the Postal Service encourages its prime suppliers to use Pass Through Pricing (PTP) when those prices and terms are more favorable than what they would pay independently.
Leveraged pricing from the Postal Service includes:
The PTP suppliers will provide specific terms and conditions along with the pricing information upon request. In the event that a prime supplier or OEM requires a different warranty, payment arrangement, packaging requirement, acceptance, or another form of transportation, the prime supplier or OEM may negotiate such arrangements with the PTP suppliers directly.
