Figure 3-9.—Example of Postage Statement-Standard Mail (A)(other than nonprofit)-Permit imprint, PS Form 3602-R
A  Bulk  Permit  is  best  suited  for  large  mailings  of First-Class   Mail   weighing   less   than   11   ounces. Standard  Mail  (A)  requires  calculation  of  postage  by both  weight  and  distance.  Use  of  the  Bulk  Mail  Permit for   these   two   categories   requires   presorting   into   ZIP Code   zones   for   determination   of   cost. The  advantage  of  using  the  Bulk  Mail  Permit  is  the reduction  in  handling  an-d  processing  time  for  the originator  and  USPS.  This  reduction  in  handling  and processing  provides  a  discount  on  the  per-piece  cost. Use  of  the  proper  permit  can  result  in  up  to  24  percent savings   in   the   total   postage   cost. When   Standard   Mail   (A)   is   authorized   to   be   sent by   permit   imprint,   you   should   prepare   a   PS   Form 3602-R   (fig.   3-9). Commands/activities   will   ensure   that   the   cost   of all  contractor  mailings  are  reported  and  included  in  the quarterly   reports. The   command   OMM   reviews   and   approves   all requests   to   use   mail   permits. The   tenant   activities’   OMM   maintains   copies   of mailing  permit  documents  for  1  year.  Mail  volume  and cost recorded on the documents will be reported quarterly.
