The postal regulatory commission approved both the inflation-based (CPI – Consumer Price Index) and exigent (based on economic “emergency” conditions) increases. These increases impact “market dominant” services (i.e., first-class letters over which the USPS has a monopoly) and “competitive services (i.e., package delivery where the USPS competes on the open market).

There's an underlying problem with digital document archiving, which may only present itself as a major problem in the future when there's a need to go back and view this digital data. It's a common problem: Opening old documents in brand-new programs doesn't always work.
Why PDF/A and not PDF?Why has a special PDF standard now been defined for archiving documents? Are traditional PDF documents not "good enough" for long-term archiving? PDF has some excellent characteristics that lend themselves to the creation of archived documents. Like a container, a PDF can incorporate completely different elements such as text, images, and fonts. In addition, it reproduces layouts that are true to the original and it is cross-platform capable.
However, certain requirements must be met in order to enable the exact reproduction of content in say 10, 20 30 years or more. For example, it is essential that fonts must be embedded like PDF/A is; a link to the font in question is not sufficient as is the case in a standard PDF file. If a font is not embedded in a PDF document it means that if, in that 10, 20, 30 years plus time-frame, a user who tries to open a document does not have a required font on his or her computer, special characters or symbols will not be displayed correctly. Fonts that are common on today's computers may not be available in the future. Imagine the problems this could create - a critical piece of information may be lost from a case file (legal field) simply because the font used to display the missing characters is no longer available. By using PDF/A files, your fonts will look the same 30 years from now as they did the day they were created.
