If you check back to the 1992-1993 timeframe, there was an internal plan within the post office to do something like this. The plan was actually broader. People recognized then that between email and fedex/UPS the future of the postal service had a dark cloud over it. As I remember it, the plan had another component to leverage the post office’s many locations as government service centers. Each location would have a rotating office depending on local needs. Monday IRS, Tuesday USDA, Wednesday Immigration, Thursday HHS, Friday VA – or some similar combination. I always liked the idea and was surprised that it never caught on. I was part of an inter-agency working group for the Reinventing Government initiative at the time.
