Business Reply Mail
Business Reply Mail (BRM) enables a department to provide its correspondents with return reply envelopes or cards that the correspondent can return without paying postage. The BRM permit holder (ASU MAIL SERVICES) is then assessed the regular First Class rate plus a BRM handling fee on each piece that is returned. BRM envelopes are primarily used at Angelo State University for return of information requested or questionnaires. The advantage of BRM is that the department pays postage and fees only on the replies that are returned. Departments wishing to use BRM must have approval from Management & Marketing prior to printing of the envelopes or cards. Contact ASU Mail services for more information on Business Reply Mail. USPS charges ASU for a permit fee in the amount of $190 and an accounting fee of $605 annually for the use of Business Reply Mail. To help ASU achieve even more savings consider having a unique email address for replies, rather than using BRM. Departments might consider having a unique email address for responses which will save ASU and your department on costs.
