BPA, ABC receive USPS authority for initial audits

Published on .

Washington, D.C.--The U.S. Postal Service signed an agreement Wednesday with BPA International and the Audit Bureau of Circulations to allow auditing companies to conduct initial as well as periodic audits in order to qualify publications for USPS periodical rates.

Prior to the agreement, BPA and ABC were not allowed to handle the initial audits.

Such authority was sought because publishers, especially when launching new publications, increasingly rely on electronic sources that the postal service's methods could not adequately address.
