Mailer Scorecards

The Mailer Scorecard tracks mail quality for mail owners and preparers at each mailing location.  It also measures mailing performance with a series of metrics based on components of electronic documentation and scans of mail pieces and containers. The scorecard assists mailers to determine if they are operating within approved USPS® thresholds and will illuminate areas that need improvement.

The USPS® is encouraging all mailers to review the Full-Service Mail Quality Metrics found on the "Electronic" tab of the Mailer Scorecard.
