An evaluation was made of the economic justification for the transfer of the incoming mail processing function from St. Albans to Charleston, West Virginia, and its impact on the mail service.

Although the exact benefits can not be determined until sometime after the consolidation is completed, the Postal Service could expect to save about $29,000 a year. The Postal Service expects to realize further savings by reducing direct labor costs. It appears that the consolidation will have little or no impact on St. Albans' mail services, and the quality of service will be maintained. The economic impact on St. Albans of the elimination of six jobs is not quantifiable. Although GAO believes that the consolidation will result in savings, the Postal Service needs to improve its estimates of the savings.
