USPS regulator hires chief data officer, seeks feedback on performance dashboard
The Postal Service’s regulatory agency hired its first chief data officer, and seeks public feedback on a dashboard it’s building to track USPS delivery performance.
The Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) said Tuesday that Russell Rappel-Schmid, a former data analyst with the USPS inspector general’s office and the state of Alaska’s first chief data officer, will serve as its first CDO. The commission said he started the job on Monday.
The commission, meanwhile, has launched the beta version of its USPS data dashboard, and is seeking public feedback for its full launch.
Once fully online, the PRC’s dashboard will complement a similar service performance dashboard hosted by the USPS Office of Inspector General.
