When Mail Services applies postage to outgoing University business mail, the postage is 'charged back' to the department by use of a Metered Mail Card. The date, amount of postage, and the department account number are recorded on the mail card. The cards are used to create a postage transaction file, which is used to record the charges in Workday Financials.
Mail Services maintains a U.S. Postal Service mailing permit. This permit provides another method of payment for postage on "mailings" processed outside the mailroom. For information and/or to insure compliance with postal regulations, notify Mail Services before using the mailing permit.
