ISC Delays Could Hurt Int'l Election Mail Preparedness
The Postal Service’s preparedness for processing international election mail, including military and diplomatic mail, is at risk based on mail processing delays at the Chicago International Service Center (ISC.), a recent Office of Inspector General report has found. The OIG conducted its study in mid-August when the Chicago ISC was still struggling with processing delays due to staffing shortages and restrictions in some countries on outbound mail. Upon a site visit in late September for another report, the OIG noted the appearance of improvements in operations and no mail sitting on the workroom floor.
