Digital Signature for Word docs

Eliminate printing and signing word documents by using the ApproveIt add-in across the DOD. I believe the Army has already implemented this, but not the other services. The ApproveIt add-in allows a CAC enabled signature on MS Word docs, rather than just the picture embedded that is inherint to MS Word. By using this add-in, signatures can be verified, can't be falsified and documents can be digitally signed vs printed and signed the same way emails are digitally signed and encrypted. This saves time, money on toner/paper and headaches trying to get a hard copy letter signed within an agency.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
