Incentivize Employees to Save

Initiate a trial program to provide nominal bonuses to federal employees based on how much their organization saves on its annual budget. Implement the program with thresholds, so as long as an employee’s organizational unit saved 2% of their annual budget, employees would receive a 0.5% salary bonus. This program would likely have the most leverage on DOD acquisition programs, but would nonetheless help motivate employees to save on training, travel, supplies, and operations all across the government.
