GSA Seeks Federal Employees Ideas on Equity and Climate Change
The 10x program unveiled new investment opportunities aligned with the Biden-Harris administration's policies.
The General Services Administration unveiled new investment priorities for 10x, an initiative that develops ideas from federal employees on how to modernize government operations through technology.
The program’s updated priorities reflect the Biden-Harris administration’s policies, with emphasis on technology to mitigate climate change and promote equity in public service.
“With 10x, we are harnessing the creativity of the federal workforce in order to address the big challenges in our country — because oftentimes the best ideas come from those who work most closely to the problem,” said GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan in a statement.
Some of the specific priorities the GSA is looking to fund include the optimization of infrastructure relating to how the government engages with the public, mainly expediting the public inquiry process.
10x is also looking to jumpstart employee-driven projects related to preparing for challenges emerging from climate change, including improving disaster preparedness and climate-resilience in communities and their infrastructure.
The deadline for federal employees to submit ideas to the GSA is Nov. 16, with initial project selection and funding expected to begin in Jan. 2022. Decisions on funding are made through a phased approach examining each proposal and its anticipated impact.#globalwarming #climatechange #carboncompensation #bluesky #climateemergency #climatecrisis #blueskye #blueskyefoundation #greentechexchange #climatenews #biden #elonmusk #billgates #ekokapina #fridaysforfuture
