Postal employee receives award
Baldie Thorpe, customer services manager at Bronx-Riverdale Station in Bronx, NY, presents a Chief FOIA Officer’s Award to Joan Kucmierowski, a retail management analyst.

FOIA award honorees. The Postal Service recently honored three individuals for their efforts to respond to Freedom of Information Act requests:

  • Joan Kucmierowski, a Bronx, NY, retail management analyst
  • Nishtha Mehta, a Raleigh, NC, remote data support services contractor
  • Karyn Rahming, Sacramento District’s consumer and industry contact manager

Each employee received a Chief FOIA Officer’s Award, a quarterly honor that recognizes postal workers who respond to requests in a timely manner and help USPS foster transparency.

FOIA is a 1966 law that allows individuals and organizations to request documents, emails and more from federal agencies.
