In order to put the postal service on a firm financial footing in the future:
1. The Atlasian Postal Service shall close and consolidate post offices if (a) substantial economic savings to the Postal Service would result from such closing or consolidation and (b) such closure or consolidation does not prevent the Atlasian Postal Service from meeting its obligation to maintain effective and regular postal services to rural communities where post offices are not self-sustaining.
2. The Postmaster General shall appoint a Chief Innovation Officer. The Chief Innovation Officer shall have proven expertise and a record of accomplishment in areas such as (1) the postal and shipping industry, (2) innovative product research and development, or (3) new and emerging communication technology. The Chief Innovation Officer shall lead the development and implementation of (1) innovative postal products and services, particularly products and services that use new and emerging technology to improve the net financial position of the Postal Service; and (2) non-postal products and services that have the potential to improve the net financial position of the Postal Service.
