University of California, San Diego

July 11, 1996
ALL AT UCSD (Excluding the Medical Center)
SUBJECT: Mail Service Seminars
On July 1, 1996, the U.S. Postal Service implemented Classification Reform, which is the most dramatic and sweeping change of mailing rules in over one hundred years. The basic principle of Classification Reform is that it strongly encourages, through discounted rates, the implementation of automation compatible mail. Automation compatible mail may be processed economically by high speed barcode readers. In return, the U.S. Postal Service is stating that rates will stabilize until the year 2000. As a large volume mailer, these changes will benefit us if we make some simple adjustments in the way we address our mail.
Mail Services and the U.S. Postal Service will be presenting a series of seminars to assist the campus community in effectively meeting the new challenges ahead of us. The purpose of the seminars is to help make your mail automation compatible. In turn, this will help the University achieve maximum postal discounts under the classification rules and regulation changes. Moreover, automation compatible mail is usually delivered by the U.S. Postal Service and Mail Services more quickly than other kinds of mail.
Mail Services has thirty seats available at each of the following "Addressing for Automation" and "Mail Piece Design" seminars (each will include both subjects):
