Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government Ash Center Bright Idea! Award
The Bright Idea! Awards serve to complement the Innovations in American Government Awards Program by shining a light on noteworthy and promising government programs and practices so the government leaders, public servants and other individuals can learn about these ideas and adopt initiatives that work. In 2015, the Ash Center recognized 124 Bright Ideas, including FAI's FAITAS. FAITAS received recognition as an "avenue for all civilian acquisition workforce members to register for training, track their certifications and manage their careers from anywhere in the world."
