****Here’s some background and the link to the SECDEF’s INVEST competition:
The Secretary of Defense has established an online contest for the purpose of soliciting and rewarding creative ideas to save money and use resources more effectively. The Secretary is seeking ideas that will save money, avoid cost, reduce cycle time, and increase agility. Ideas should contribute to the Secretary’s five-year goal of $100 billion in savings.
The INVEST competition runs 9 August – 24 September 2010. All Civilian employees and active duty or reservist military personnel within the Department of Defense are eligible and encouraged to participate. Following the review and evaluation process, the winners will be announced approximately one month after the submission deadline.
