USPS OIG – Delivering for America Oversight Strategy

READ FULL ARTICLE AT » Office of Inspector General OIG

The OIG is committed to assessing the service, financial, sustainability, and labor impacts of network changes related to the Postal Service’s 10-year Delivering for America (DFA) plan.


In March 2021, the Postal Service announced the DFA, outlining significant changes to many aspects of its operations. These changes include redesigned processing, transportation, and delivery networks, and more than $40 billion in increased investments between fiscal years (FYs) 2021 and 2030. As such, oversight of DFA initiatives is a big focus of our work.

Here are few of our recent audits on our DFA oversight work:
