USPS® understands that many people may be involved in the development of an Informed Delivery® campaign, including gathering necessary elements and content (e.g. the Mailer Identifier (MID), Intelligent Mail® barcode (IMb®)/Serial Number range, start/end dates, images, URL, etc.).
However, one designated person must work with the Informed Delivery Program Office or the PostalOne!® Customer Acceptance Testing (CAT) team to ensure all campaign elements and content are complete.
