SAVE Award 2011: Final Day
It’s been a little more than two weeks since we launched the third annual SAVE Award competition – and federal employees have really answered the President’s call to help out in the Campaign to Cut Waste.
As of this morning, we’ve received 15,000 ideas about how to make government more efficient and effective. More than 19,000 federal employees from across the country have weighed in, submitting ideas or casting some of the 72,000 votes in support of their favorite ideas.
But we’re not done yet.
Today is the final day for federal employees to submit their cost-cutting ideas through the SAVE Award. So if you’re a member of the federal workforce, take a minute to submit your idea, and encourage your co-workers to do the same.
For everyone else, sit tight as we begin sorting through the thousands of submissions we’ve received, and get ready to help us pick this year’s winner when we unveil the finalists in a few weeks time.
Kenneth Baer is Senior Advisor and Associate Director for Communications and Strategic Planning.
