GAO Report

"We deliver for you," the U.S. Postal Service likes to say in its ads. Delivery of physical security for its facilities hasn't been as regular, however. GAO site visits to 13 "core facilities revealed a number of security problems," including unaccounted-for keys, deactivated alarms, unlocked gates, unsecured stamps, and employees without ID badges. On the positive side, the USPS has specified security requirements for core facilities and has made gains in carrying these out. @ SM Online has the GAO report on the audit.
