Acting General Service Administration chief Dan Tangherlini wants agency personnel to submit ideas intended to help make the GSA more efficient, GovExec reports.

Eric Katz writes GSA has received 600 new concepts and 20,000 comments through its “Great Ideas Hunt” program.

Tangherlini told the Excellence in Government conference the agency has looked into crowdsourcing to improve operations and other agencies should do the same, Katz reports.

GSA has adopted new ideas to manage its workspace, which Tangherlini said averages out to 86 square feet.

The agency wants to accelerate adoption of cloud computing to share more information with more people and be more transparent, he said, according to the report.
