The Postal Service works closely with key government stakeholders to educate them and serve as a resource on postal issues or their constituents' interaction with our organization. Working with appropriate functions throughout the Postal Service, Government Relations staff ensure that a coordinated and consistent message is communicated to key government stakeholders or through them to the public.

The department’s responsibilities include:

  • Developing communications strategies and advocacy materials to support USPS® legislative and public policy objectives, and developing congressional testimony, briefing materials and educational content to support these objectives.
  • Monitoring and analyzing legislative and regulatory proposals that may affect the Postal Service and advising USPS leadership of any potential impact to our organization.
  • Providing advice and counsel to internal stakeholders regarding our public position on key issues and facilitating relationships between postal executives and external stakeholders.

NEW Capitol Hill Liaison Office

In February 2024, the Postal Service opened a new Capitol Hill Liaison Office to serve congressional staff, joining a number of other federal agencies in a centralized liaison office. The Postal Service Capitol Hill Liaison Office is staffed by headquarters-based Postal Service Government Relations personnel and serves as an additional point of contact on Postal Service policy and strategic initiatives.  Please note that the services offered at this location do not supplant the local congressional district-based points of contact which continue as the proper means for resolving routine local delivery service inquiries. The Postal Service Capitol Hill Liaison office is located at Longworth B-245 – appointments encouraged by calling 202-268-7521; walk-ins welcomed.
