Abstract : This study determined the feasibility of introducing postage meters and related equipment into the Army Official Mail Management System as well as evaluating the potential for decentralizing the budgeting for official mail costs to the user level. The study concluded that there was no cost/benefit basis for the integration of postage meters and decentralized budgeting into the Army Official Mail Control Program at this time and recommended that a comprehensive official mail management program be implemented which would cause substantial improvements in the existing Official Mail Cost Control Program, as defined in AR 340-3 and the interim change thereto.
