Today is the last day for federal employees to submit ideas for the SAVE awards, which provide a way for workers to submit cost-cutting suggestions to the government.

“As of this morning, we’ve received 15,000 ideas about how to make government more efficient and effective,” said Kenneth Baer, the Office of Budget and Management associate director for communications in a blog post. “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.”

Ideas may be submitted through the White House Web site, http://www.whitehouse.gov/save-award
