www.usps.comThe U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has one of the largest construction programs in the nation. Occupying 35,000 facilities, it constructs between 500 and 700 new facilities annually. The USPS leases 25,987 facilities at a rental cost of $869.7 million. With an eye on its bottom line, the USPS has scaled down its construction program and has reduced its workforce through attrition and reduced hours of operation. According to public reports, the strategies worked in 2003: The USPS ended its fiscal year in the black for the first time since 1999.[Editors’ Note: The USPS proudly displays its patronage to the red, white, and blue – and green. Committed to being a good environmental neighbor in every community it serves, the agency has developed comprehensive environmental programs nationally that focus on recycling, pollution prevention, waste reduction, energy savings, and transportation efficiency – further supported by the directives outlined in the “Greening of the Government” Executive Orders. Central to its program, however, is tracking the viability of ecologically superior materials and systems.]
