REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- The U.S. Army Materiel Command is soliciting Bold Ideas from AMC personnel from Oct. 31 to Dec. 30, as part of an effort to transform the command into being more cost-effective, creating leaner processes and becoming more energy-efficient command-wide.

The campaign is designed to rapidly gather bold ideas and provide recognition for participants contributing ideas that have potential to be implemented across the command. The program will be implemented in three phases: Preparation; Analysis and Tracking; and the Awards and close-out phase. Subject-matter-experts will evaluate submitted ideas to determine their merit by adhering to rules of assessment outlined by AMC to measure functional/feasibility of the idea and potential to be implemented across the command. Ideas deemed 'of merit' will receive recognition and a letter of endorsement from AMC to participate in the Army Suggestion Program.

Personnel may submit ideas through the Bold Ideas website, at, accessible from the CECOM homepage and CECOM AKO portal sites. Look for the Bold Ideas logo, click and register with your CAC e-mail certificate. Once registered, personnel may submit their ideas and feedback which will be assessed by technical experts who will advise AMC headquarters on implementation strategies.

Ideas submitted through the website will go directly to AMC headquarters where a final determination will be made on suggestions, programs and processes that can save command resources. An awards ceremony will be held in February recognizing Bold Idea initiatives of merit.
