Got an idea to save the government money? If you’re a federal employee, chances are you’ve come across countless opportunities to cut waste in your day-to-day activities. Now you’ve got a chance to see your idea actually turned into reality. The White House is now taking submissions for their third annual SAVE (Securing Americans Value and Efficiency) awards. The White House is looking for ideas that meet the following guidelines:
Does the idea reduce costs in a way that is concrete and quantifiable?
Does the idea improve the way that government operates by:
- Improving the quality of output at lower costs; or
- Simplifying processes to reduce administrative burden; or
- Improving the speed of government operations to improve efficiency?
Can the idea be implemented Administratively by the Executive Branch or would it require an act of Congress?

Love the SAVE Awards. Cool to see it is up again. I’m intrigued to see if they have evolved it over the years or if still just general idea session.
