Mail Management Data

Data is compiled for each fiscal year.

This data is required under 44 U.S.C. §2904 “General Responsibilities for Records Management." Further, the Mail Records Management Tables are produced in part through the Simplified Mail Accounting Report (SMART), an Internet-based application that collects mail-related data from Federal agencies.  The SMART users guide can be accessed at this link Smart Tool User Guide v5. The tables represent:

  1. Total Mail Expenditures by Agency
  2. Federal Agency - USPS Domestic Expenditure
  3. Federal Agency - USPS International Expenditure
  4. Commercial Carrier Expenditures
  5. Professional Certifications by Federal Agencies

The FY 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Federal Mail Open Data Sets are provided to support transparency in Government.

If you have any questions about the tables, or would like to offer comments or suggestions on its content, please contact us at
