NALC and Postal Service agree on TIAREAP extension until May 31

January 4, 2024


Pursuant to the memorandum of understanding MOU Re: Extension of the Technology Integrated Alternate Route Evaluation and Adjustment Process 2022-2023 (M-01998), NALC and the Postal Service have agreed to an extension of the joint route evaluation and adjustment process until May 31, 2024. The Technology Integrated Alternate Route Evaluation and Adjustment Process (TIAREAP), outlined in M-01982, is an agreed upon process by the national parties that utilizes teams of NALC and USPS representatives to evaluate and adjust city delivery routes.

In the extension, the national parties also agreed to add an additional opt in period to include delivery zones for evaluation and adjustment under this process. That opt in period will be conducted from January 8, 2024, through January 12, 2024. Approved requests for special inspections pursuant to Handbook M-39, Chapter 2, Section 271 will continue to be forwarded to the TIAREAP district lead team (DLT) for scheduling of evaluation and adjustment under the joint process.

Both MOUs can be found in NALC’s Materials Reference System.
