The U.S. Postal Service enters into customer agreements to provide customers with customized shipping solutions and mailing incentives. These agreements provide mutual benefits for the Postal Service and its customers. One type of customer agreement is a Negotiated Service Agreement (NSA), which is a contractual agreement between the Postal Service and a specific mailer that gives the mailer customized pricing in exchange for meeting volume and mail preparation requirements.
