The U.S. Postal Service has begun to solicit industry insights on potential sources to support the service’s needs with the acquisition of an advanced analytic capability platform in an effort to determine focus areas for new initiatives.
USPS said in a solicitation published Feb. 18 that it created an advanced analytics center of excellence to analyze USPS data and predict events, detect patterns and recommend actions with the use of modeling techniques.
The service seeks a centralized platform for analytics that applies problem solving and prototyping and uses internal and external data to address business questions and gain insights.
Potential vendors will be tasked to design the proposed platform to conduct supervised and unsupervised machine learning.
Submissions to this solicitation are due March 21.
