OMB Seeks Online Votes for Cost-Reduction Ideas

money-graphThe Office of Management and Budget has launched an online vote on four finalists in a government competition seeking cost reduction ideas from federal employees, GovExec reported Monday.

Tom Shoop writes contestants for the Obama administration’s SAVE Award contest will be judged based on how their proposals help to cut costs in a measurable manner, streamline processes and aid in government operations.

The criteria also includes whether the executive branch can implement the idea or an act of Congress is needed to enforce the proposal, according to the report.

OMB is accepting online votes until Dec. 20, according to the report.
