When the U.S. Postal Service's top marketing officer agreed to hire Goldman Sachs nearly two years ago without a written contract, top executives inside postal headquarters scrambled to make the unauthorized deal square with postal procurement rules.
Mr. Pedersen said he became involved in the Goldman Sachs contract at the request of the Postal Service's chief financial officer, Joseph Corbett, who appeared to have misgivings about the deal.
Mr. Pedersen told investigators that he awarded a formal contract to Goldman Sachs on behalf of the Postal Service in February 2009 - months after Mr. Bernstock hired the company.
