OIG Finds USPS Won't Fully Meet STOP Act by January
A recently released Office of Inspector General report has found that the Postal Service will not be able to fully meet STOP Act requirements to provide advance electronic data (AED) on all incoming international packages by January 1, 2021. "USPS’ ability to comply with the STOP Act is not only constrained by other posts’ technical limitations, but also by uncertainty regarding the law’s implementation," the report said. The report has redacted all figures related to percentages or levels of AED collected, as well as other sensitive information. Still, the report provides an in-depth look at the STOP Act's requirements and some of the challenges and hurdles posts face in capturing and presenting all the necessary data.
