Marketplace Morning Report: The Post Office Knock-On Effect


Husch Blackwell Partner David P. Hendel was interviewed on American Public Media's Marketplace Morning Report regarding the U.S. Postal Service's budget concerns and its hope to bring down contractor costs. Hendel, whose Government Contracts practice focuses on Postal Service Contracting, said that postal outsourcing is nothing new. "Mail that goes any kind of distance at all has been contracted out from time immemorial." But he also warns that due to an increasing need to cut costs, some contracts might be on the chopping block. "As the Postal Service contracts, it's buying less of everything."
