WHY YOUR OFFICE IS THE LEVEL IT IS
UNDERSTANDING THE PS150
CREATED OVER 30 YEARS AGO
THE PS 150 WAS DEVELOPED BY HEADQUARTERS WITH IMPUT FROM THE POSTMASTER ASSOCIATIONS. IT IS USED TO DETERMINE THE NUMBER OF HOURS A POST OFFICE IS OPEN EACH DAY AND ALSO THE GRADE LEVEL OF THE ASSIGNED POSTMASTER.
HOW IS THIS DETERMINED?
BY WORK SERVICE CREDITS WHICH ARE BASED ON POSTMASTERS RESPONSIBILITY, REVENUE, TYPE AND NUMBER OF DELIVERIES, SEASONAL WORKLOAD, EXCEPTION CREDITS AND DEDUCTIONS.
WHEN IS A PS 150 COMPLETED?
A VACANT OFFICE IS AN OFFICE THAT HAS NO PERMANENT POSTMASTER ASSIGNED TO THAT COMMUNITY.
THIS USUALLY HAPPENS THROUGH A PROMOTION OF THE CURRENT POSTMASTER OR A RETIREMENT.
THE DISTRICT HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO HAVE A PS150 COMPILED AND THEN TO VERIFY THE SUBMITTED DATA.
IT IS THE POOM’S RESPONSIBILITY TO VERIFY THE DATA SUBMITTED AND TO THEN SEND IT ON TO HUMAN RESOURCES FOR OFFICE AND POSTMASTER LEVEL DETERMINATION.
A VACANT OFFICE MAY BE USED FOR A REASONABLE TIME PERIOD FOR TRAINING PURPOSES.
WHEN DOES A POSTMASTER INITIATE A PS 150 AND HOW?
THE POSTMASTER BELIEVES THAT THE OFFICE MAY QUALIFY FOR THE NEXT GRADE LEVEL DUE TO DELIVERY OR REVENUE GROWTH OR OTHER CONDITIONS CONTAINED ON THE FORM.
THE POSTMASTER SHOULD REVIEW ALL THE CRITERIA BEFORE COMPLETING THE FORM PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE EXCEPTION CREDITS AND DEDUCTIONS
