Some contractors may stop work on contracts until payment is received. Some may decide not to provide any more product or services after payments stop. Given that nearly all inter-city transportation involves contractors, the greatest risk to service would come if the cash shortfall is large enough to prevent the Postal Service from paying its transportation contractors.
The Postmaster General's testimony requires Postal contractors to assess the payment risk. Unless the Postal Service begins talking to its contractors now about the payment risks that contractors face, they may asume that the risk is quite high. Such an assummption could create significant challenges for the Postal Service in providing the mail and parcel delivery services that are critical to the economy in the 4th quarter of 2011 and beyond. The sooner the Postal Service can allay fears of contractors the sooner they can ensure that Postal contractors continue to act as the partners that they are.
