The U.N. agency that manages the United States Postal Service is not using an automated system to track the number of U.s. postal employees seeking employment, the agency’s CEO said in an interview with Business Insider on Wednesday.
The USPS has been struggling to find new revenue sources, particularly after the Postal Service was forced to cut staff and lay off hundreds of employees during the Great Recession.
The Postal Service has had trouble filling vacant jobs in recent years, which has led to more and more employees seeking jobs elsewhere, including at retail outlets.
The agency is also struggling to get more customers, which is contributing to a shortage of workers.
A new report from the government agency found that the USPS has more than 200,000 postal employees looking for work.
The postal service said the issue has been resolved, but it would not provide an exact count of the number who are actively seeking work.
“It’s a really difficult problem for us,” John J. Sullivan, the USPS’s chief financial officer, told Business Insider in an email.
“There are a number of issues that we’re working on, but this is a big one.
Postal employees who do find employment are generally very active in their search.”
Sullivan did not provide a timeline for when the USPS would fix the issue.
He said the agency is now using the automated data tracking system USPSTrackers to track employee data, and he did not identify how the agency was doing so.
USPSTrackings was created in December, when the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act passed the House of Representatives and is expected to become law in July.
It requires the Postal Security Service to develop an automated tracking system that tracks postal employees’ information and sends it to the Postal Management Office, which then forwards the data to the USPS.
The system is designed to help the USPS determine how to best spend postal money and manage the agency.
Sullivan said that in the last six months, the Postal Integrity Office has started implementing the USPSTrackrs data collection.
But he did say that there is still some work to be done.
“The Postal Service currently has the capability to identify and respond to requests from USPSTracker to the U. S. Office of Personnel Management, but we have not been able to do so because of the time it takes for those requests to be processed and to be returned to the Office of the Postal Inspector General,” he said.
The Office of Inspector General, which handles the USPS’ handling of complaints about the agency, has also not responded to a request for comment about the issue from Business Insider.
Sullivan also did not address the issue with the Postal Personnel Security Oversight Office.
Sullivan added that the agency has also worked with the Office for Civil Rights, which oversees the Office to identify complaints about its handling of workplace discrimination complaints.
Sullivan did acknowledge that the U
