Honoring innovation


Informed Delivery was named one of the top public sector innovations during this year’s Government Innovation Awards.

The free feature that provides users with digital previews of their incoming mail was honored during a ceremony this month in McLean, VA.

Product Innovation Vice President Gary Reblin represented USPS at the event, where other honorees included technology initiatives by the U.S. State Department, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and others.

The awards’ website has more information, including a list of all recipients, as well as an overview of Informed Delivery and how it’s part of the Postal Service’s strategy to reinvent mail and make it more valuable to consumers and businesses.

Informed Delivery recently reached 20.6 million subscribers, surpassing the Postal Service’s goal for the year.
