Welcome to Presort Accuracy, Validation, and Evaluation (PAVE)

The PAVE program is a process, designed in cooperation with the mailing industry, to evaluate presort software and determine its accuracy in sorting and hardware developers, i.e., companies that develop presort software or manufacture presorting equipment for resale or internal use. PAVE provides a common platform to measure the quality of presort products, including an evaluation of standardized documentation, container labels and postage statement facsimiles that support presorted mailings, and, by doing so, improves the accuracy of presorted mailings.
