apo rmpo training


Presented by Colorado NAPUS



Each office will have different issues depending on:

  • Current staffing:
  • OIC who leaves day of the transfer to APO Postmaster.
  • Postmaster/PMR-new, relatively new or long time employee.
  • 2 or more PMR’s splitting days of the week they work.
  • In any case you now are responsible not only for your office but also responsible for your new RMPO office.
  • This training is to help you be prepared for what you are responsible for and what might happen.

Day of Transfer:

  • It is important that when the RMPO Office is transferred to you that you:
    • Get a key to the doors, Arrow Key and combination to the safe.
    • Get Fedstrip number.
    • Get Employee’s phone numbers.
    • Verify the PS 3977’s are current and filled out correctly including passwords for the Ace Computer, credit card machine and a duplicate key for Main Stock. Information on how to correctly complete PS 3977’s and a copy of the PS 3902 log you can type into on the computer go to: http://western2.fws.usps.gov/sites/cowy/finance/sctr/Additionalwebpages/SecurityKeyAccountability.aspx
    • Set yourself up to use the VeriFone Credit Card Machine. If the Users Manual isn’t there go to the link below: http://blue.usps.gov/corptreasury/quickref.htm
    • Verify the Bait Money Orders and make sure log is current. Link below is to CO/WY Sox compliance webpage/money orders: http://western2.fws.usps.gov/sites/cowy/finance/sctr/Additionalwebpages/MoneyOrder.aspx

  • Conversion Guide:
  • http://nfs.usps.gov/NFSweb/documents/HQ/SDAConversionGuide.pdf
  • Stamp ordering:
  • PMR in RMPO office orders stamps through eBuy. You approve their order after making sure that this order does not put them over their stamp accountability limit.
  • Make sure that all PMR’s who have eBuy access change their approving manager to you instead of the POOM.

Bill Pay & Supplies ordering:

I asked Daryl Trujillo, CO/WY District POStPlan Coordinator the question-Does the APO Postmaster have one Smart Pay Card for all his offices or one for each office. Answer below:


The direction I am receiving from Finance is to have one Smart Card for the APO which does the purchasing for the RMPO. The general thought is when offices with reduced and limited retail hours need supplies, the APO can procure for their limited needs. If the APO is concerned with TOE as a result, they can submit a request to District Finance Manager for adjustment at end of year.

Thank you,

Use of Personal Owned Vehicle

  • Problem is-- right now you are not covered by Postal Service Insurance if you have an accident doing postal service work even though you are on the clock.
  • Postal Service Headquarters is working on a solution.
  • Most of us have been using our POV for Postal Service business.
  • If you do use your POV, be sure to use eTravel and be reimbursed for you mileage.
  • 5. Official Letter that states you can not be required to use your POV:

Use of POV to manage RMPO Offices: Official Rule in letter dated March 12, 2004:

If you do use your POV to visit RMPO offices, you do get paid mileage. Be sure to submit through eTravel.
