10/13/2021: We have received clarification from GSA and will be posting another blog post with updated information soon. In the meantime, do not take any action on the basis of this blog post, which pertains only to classified information.
The government contract through the General Services Administration (GSA) with UPS has expired. This means that at this time, there is no authorization to utilize UPS to ship Government information or items. Reference 32 CFR § 117.15(f)(3). Another blog post will be sent once another contract with GSA has been put in place, and UPS will be an authorized carrier again.
