Interagency Mail

If interagency mail is improperly addressed, mail will be returned to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Mail and Distribution Services. An attempt will be made by UNL Mail and Distribution Services to return the mail to the originating department.

If the item does not have a return address, the item will be opened by UNL Mail and Distribution Services only to determine who sent the mail so that it can be redirected back to the originating department. If the sending department/individual can not be identified, the mail will be retained by Mailing Services for 90 days before disposal.

Reason for Policy

This policy is intended to enhance the security of all State of Nebraska interagency mail.
