HUD and other Federal agencies should use the USPS for shipping needs
UPS is the shipping entity used in our field office. I don't know if this is a regional decision or HUD wide, but we should be supporting the United States Postal Service. The USPS provides excellent service, that is comparable in convenients to UPS or Federal Express.
Thank you for your idea! We will look into this and get back to you soon.
Given the current financial situation, I think we should be looking at ways to 1) cut our need for shipping by sending more things electronically and 2) using the cheapest service available that can get the work done. If UPS does the same thing as USPS at a lower cost, we should be using UPS.
