  • the delivery, collection and metering of USPS domestic and international mail
  • delivery and collection of interagency mail
  • delivery and collection of state warrants
  • Statewide Mail Operations Contracts Administration
  • agency requests for mail equipment purchase, leasing and service review and approval
  • outgoing mail information including mail types, mail piece design, addressing and packaging information

Mail Operations

The interagency mail service transports more than 1 million pieces of mail between state agencies annually, eliminating the need to pay postage for items delivered between state agency locations using this service.

  1. Do not apply postage to items sent via interagency mail.
  2. A list of participating agencies, including locations, may be found on the Interagency Mail List webpage.
