The General Services Administration has launched Challenge.gov as part of an effort to help “government and the public work together to find solutions.” Citizens can vote to support a challenge, contribute to a discussion board and federal agencies can post their own challenges to the site. According to the Challenge.gov Website, “this platform is the latest milestone in the Administration’s commitment to use prizes and challenges to promote innovation.”
Challenge.gov is powered by New York-based start-up ChallengePost. You can follow @ChallengeGov on Twitter. See also GovLoop’s in-depth interview with GSA’s Director of Center for New Media and Citizen Engagement Bev Godwin about the new site.
