Post Masters was recently awarded a major contract with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to print and mail official documents for the National Finance Center (NFC). This is the fourth Federal contract Post Masters has been awarded.


“This is a significant contract for Post Masters as it furthers our relationship with the federal government in providing confidentiality, security and integrity through our systems, facilities and technical staff,” said Jeff Harris, Director of Post Masters.”


Post Masters, which is a division of AWS, provides full service print and mail services and has locations in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri.


The contract was procured through NISH, a nonprofit agency designated by the U.S. AbilityOne Commission (a federal government agency) to support nonprofit agencies (NPAs) such as Post Masters, participating in the AbilityOne Program.  The program’s objective is to oversee contracts that provide employment opportunities to people with disabilities.  As a participant in this program, Post Masters hires people with disabilities, including disabled service veterans and Wounded Warriors as a part of our mission. 


As part of the USDA contract, Post Masters receives electronic data from NFC on 26 projects, translating to approximately 2.6 million files to print and mail annually.  Post Masters, along with our partner, Bacompt Systems, formats and prints the electronic data files, processes the mail using intelligent ‘100% Integrity’ inserting using 2D barcode logic, and applies an Intelligent Mail Barcode (IMB) to realize USPS postage discount savings for our customers.  All work is done in Post Masters’ Indianapolis facility.


To accommodate this contract, Post Masters increased its workforce by 5% and expanded its square footage to 50,000 square feet at its Indianapolis facility, upgraded sorting equipment and purchased two additional intelligent inserters. 


Post Masters is ISO 9001:2008 certified.  For more information about Post Masters, visit our website at or contact us at 260-744-7400 (Fort Wayne) or 317-972-1000 (Indianapolis).
