Deluxe Delivery Systems (DDS) is the carrier vendor who has the responsibilities for delivery of interoffice mail, special education and special “on – demand” requests for deliveries between schools and offices within the Department of Education as well as the distribution of payroll.
Interoffice mail will be picked up and delivered on Monday and Wednesday of each week. Committee on Special Education (CSE) deliveries will be picked up Tuesday from all locations for Wednesday delivery, and picked up on Thursday and delivered on Fridays. The new schedules for the interoffice mail, CSE and payroll deliveries are available on the Interoffice Mail & Payroll Distribution/Procedures Calendar for School Year 2007 – 2008.
Special delivery requests defined as any package weighing more than one pound but less than 40 pounds or for any delivery date outside the interoffice mail schedule can not be placed via fax or telephone calls. The contracted vendor Deluxe Delivery Systems will only accept special delivery requests through an order application available on the FAMIS Portal. This is a user friendly process that ensures all orders are fulfilled accurately and delivered on time. For instructions on how to navigate to the application and a review of the process for placing an order on the FAMIS Portal, please access the FAMIS Courier Special Order User Guide.
