Automated Army Suggestion Program, (ASP)
Army Suggestion Program provides an automated means by which the Soldiers, employees and others
who live and work at Fort Belvoir can identify process improvements, business re-engineering opportunities, and
savings for the installation and the federal government. In this era of shrinking budgets and downsized
workforces, it makes sense to actively pursue the benefits of the Army Suggestion Program since
an effective suggestion program can yield a significant return on investments. Fort Belvoir is interested
in receiving suggestions from anyone who works at the post or uses the post’s facilities.
The automated site launched on 17 May 04 and is located on AKO. The site facilitates suggestion submission, improves
timeliness for processing suggestions, facilitates tracking of suggestions, and assists with reporting procedures. The
website is intended to provide a standard method of processing suggestions; however, the system will continue to be modified
to meet the needs of customers, coordinators, and program managers, as appropriate. You are encouraged to explore the
site and submit your good ideas. You will need your AKO login to access the site.
The Army Suggestion Program is managed by the post’s Plans, Analysis and Integration Office (PAIO), located at post
headquarters in Abbot Hall, on South Post. Suggestions received through the Army Suggestion Program that
are directed to Fort Belvoir go directly to the program manager at PAIO. The manager will identify and assign the appropriate
Functional Proponent within the garrison to start the evaluation process.
Employees whose suggestions are adopted may be eligible for monetary recognition in accordance with AR 5-17. To be
considered for an award a suggestion must identify an improvement in the quality of operations, a cost reduction opportunity,
or an improvement in the timeliness of service delivery that results in tangible or intangible benefits to the U.S. Government. Your
idea must be adopted in whole or in part for implementation. Ideas or suggestions that point out the need for routine
maintenance work, recommend enforcement of an existing rule, propose changes in housekeeping practices, call attention to
errors or alleged violations of regulations, or result in intangible benefits of good will are eligible for consideration
if they significantly improve safety or working conditions, saves property or improves energy use, but they do not qualify
for monetary awards.
