Position 61 has a Y asking for NDC discounts in the ENT PT parameter.  Position 60 asking for SCF discounts is blank.
Why did this FSF pallet receive the SCF discount even though the pieces are entered at an NDC?

The DMM allows this according to the DMM reference – DMM 246.6.2:
 

6.0 Destination Flat Sequencing System (DFSS) Facility Entry

6.1 Definition
Destination Flat Sequencing System (DFSS) refers to the facilities listed in L006.
 
6.2 Eligibility
[1-22-17] DSCF prices apply to pieces deposited at a USPS-designated FSS processing site and correctly placed in or on a container labeled to a FSS scheme or FSS Facility processed by that site under labeling list L006 (Column B or Column C).These pieces must include a full delivery address and meet the physical standards for FSS machinability in 705.14.0.


The FSF pallet has to be dropped at the location/facility where the machine is located.  MSP determines this when the locale key for the entry point and the FSS facility are the same.
