MAIL SERVICES DIVISION
March 15, 2004
Despite cost cutting and improved operating efficiencies, Mail Services is unable to hold the mail distribution charge at its current level. The current monthly rate of $20 per mail code has remained unchanged for over ten years. This rate is far lower than any other campus in the UC system.
The monthly rate effective April 1, 2004 will be $34 per mail code. Please refer to Blink http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/mailcodechange for full details on the effect of the rate increase. This is the first of a three-year-phased rate increase that the Campus Rate Recharge Review Committee recommended. We currently estimate that the monthly rate per mail code at the end of the three year period will be $60, which is still below the comparable rate at most other UC campuses.
We will continue efforts that we have initiated in the past year to improve productivity and cut costs, while providing good service to our customers. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (858)534-0508.
