  2. Who perform additional mail preparation in order to enter mail after a Business Mail Entry Unit’s (BMEU) normal Critical Acceptance Time (CAT), and/or
  3. Whose volume warrants multiple dispatches to the BMEU to avoid the entire mailing being presented close to or at the unit’s Critical Acceptance Time.

CSAs are created jointly by the Postal Service® and mailers. The USPS® enters the data into the Facilities Access & Shipment Tracking (FAST®) system. Mailers can then download their CSA(s) from FAST. A Guide to Customer/Supplier Agreements describes how to access this data.
