The Idea Fund invests resources to support efficiencies and generate savings within the public service as part of the advancement of government’s Transforming the Public Service: A Strategy for Action. This fund recognizes the good ideas coming from the public service that drive innovation, improve engagement and generate savings for government.
Funding is available to government departments as well as other government organizations within the health and education sectors for projects and initiatives on an application basis. Approved projects must demonstrate a positive return on investment, with a payback period within four fiscal years (2019/20 to 2022/23).
All government departments have been asked to submit five Idea Fund applications as part of government’s 100 Day Plan following the 2019 general election. The applications are at various stages of review and implementation as part of the total idea fund pool of applications.
