Another year, another opportunity to tell the Obama Administration how to save money. Federal employees can submit their efficiency ideas in the 4th annual SAVE Award competition. The winner will be invited to the White House to present his or her idea to the President and the top ideas will be included in the Administration’s fiscal year 2014 budget submission. The deadline for submission is Tuesday, July 24. For more information, go to www.whitehouse.gov/save-award.
Most of the ideas are kind of lame (e.g., turn out the lights, print on both sides, hybrid cars, telework, etc.), but once every 100 or so ideas you will find something practical, useful, and feasible. Lots of re-runs from previous years, but give it a shot!
