A number of NASA offices, Centers, and Mission Directorates are using challenge-driven approaches to solve a variety of problems. There are several NASA programs, pilots, and activities that design and implement different types of challenges. All current opportunities available to the general public through NASA challenges, prize competitions, and crowdsourcing activities and programs are listed on the NASA Solve website: http://www.nasa.gov/solve/. Use this site as your first stop for information and engagement. We want YOU to get involved! These activities have played an important role in stimulating innovation and helping NASA develop innovative solutions. They offer several unique benefits and can result in a variety of valuable outcomes ranging from NASA’s own immediate use of the solutions, development of new viable aerospace industry vendors and even commercialization of new products. These programs include: NASA’s Centennial Challenges’ Program within the Space Technology Mission Directorate directly engages the public at large in the process of advanced technology development that is of value to NASA’s missions and to the aerospace community. Millions of dollars in prizes have been awarded through this program since 2005.

G S A’s mission is to deliver the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services to government and the American people. To date, GSA has launched seven challenge and prize competitions, ranging from video and creative challenges to open data challenges. The federal-wide challenge and prize program is also managed by GSA’s Challenge.gov in partnership with White House Office of Science & Technology Policy and NASA’s Center for Excellence in Collaborative Innovation. Our agency’s Office of Innovative Technologies, Government Solutions manages programs like FedRAMP, Data.gov, and Challenge.gov. Take some time learn about the Data.gov, home of the U.S. government’s open data, where you will find data, tools, and resources to conduct research, develop web and mobile applications, and more. Read about the OIT programs and what you can do to implement these programs in your agency. Leading with Innovation. GSA is a leader of innovation in public service. For example, GSA was the first government agency to move to the cloud and to offer a process to streamline security of cloud services for the entire federal government. We are promoting an innovative, flexible, open workplace that will shrink the federal footprint while also serving as a model for federal offices for the future. In the coming year, we will continue to develop innovative cost-saving solutions that will be shared across the government.
