The first class Mail and USPS Marketing Mail NSA is based on the combined sales of first-class Mail Automation Letters, USPS Marketing Mail Automation Letters and USPS Marketing Mail Carrier Route Automation Letters and incentivizes to drive first-class Mail growth. A baseline is determined from the revenue generated by first-class email automation letters, USPS Marketing email automation letters, and USPS email carrier compatible letters, which are sent for a period of 12 months as a full smart messaging price (705.23.0) and are eligible. It contains a postage threshold that is adapted from the baseline to qualify for a discount. If the adjusted revenue threshold is reached, a discount will be generated on a percentage of the difference in a postage increase resulting from a consecutive cumulative increase in first-class mail prices and USPS Marketing Mail relative to the prices in effect at the time of the agreement. If the adjusted revenue threshold is not reached, the NSA holder will pay a penalty. An NSA is a contractual agreement between the postal service and a company that benefits both parties. The customer receives price incentives for meeting negotiated thresholds for mail volume, and the verification and negotiation process improves business relations. In addition, the postal service will better understand and work to meet customers` business requirements and expectations, which will improve the postal service as a whole. An NSA is a contractual agreement between the postal service and a single company that offers fare incentives in exchange for a change in the company`s behavior that benefits the postal service. In many cases, the change in behavior mentioned in the contract will represent a significant increase in the annual volume of first-class email or standard email. To enter into force, the proposed NSA must be reviewed and recommended by the Postal Rates Commission (PRC) and approved by the Board of Governors. An NSA is a contractual agreement between the postal service and an email, under which the mailer receives tailor-made prices in exchange for the volume and preparation requirements of the mail. The goal of using ASNs is to retain price-sensitive customers and encourage additional email volumes and revenue.
While only a small fraction of the postal service`s commercial parcel customers have ASN, 40% of the domestic parcel volume of 5.5 billion postal services are sent under these agreements. If the USPS decides to terminate negotiations with the applicant before reaching an agreement on the conclusion of an NSA in point 1.1, the manager of Pricing Strategy shall inform the applicant in writing and state the reasons for the decision. . . .
