USPS Vows To Make Changes After Audit Uncovers Issues At Baltimore Facility

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A recent audit has found that a U.S. Postal Service hub in Baltimore is processing millions of fewer pieces of mail compared to last year, even though work hours and overtime have gone up significantly.

The audit was initiated by the USPS Office of Inspector General in response to scrutiny from members of the Maryland Delegation—Congressmen Dutch Ruppersberger and Kweisi Mfume, along with Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen—who expressed concerns about missing mail and delayed deliveries.

In response to the lawmakers’ inquiries, the USPS said it’s hired 2,245 employees in Maryland since late August, it has opened a new mail carrier training academy for the Baltimore region and it has added two new package sorting facilities and six additional delivery facilities in Maryland, among other things.
