The Army Suggestion Program is an employee involvement program that actively seeks and rewards ideas from our Soldiers and civilians. The ASP provides a standard method for employees to use to submit ideas and explains evaluation and disposition procedures.

Submitting a suggestion: Headquarters, Department of the Army has transitioned the program from paper forms and other local methods to a new Army Knowledge Online based method of submitting suggestions to the ASP. When you link to this site, you will be prompted for your AKO login ID and password. Having logged on, you will find the instructions for submitting a suggestion in the ASP User Guide, p. 9.

The Plans, Analysis and Integration Office is responsible for the implementation of the Army Suggestion Program on the Fort Meade Installation. The ASP is an avenue to present the means of resolution to a problem or situation with sufficient rationale to support the requested new processes. PAIO's goal is to guarantee that every suggestion is handled promptly, fairly and courteously. It must be of benefit to the Federal Government hence is the reason for forwarding the suggestion to the functional areas which deal with their skill sets and core competencies. An idea of what a good suggestion is would be consistent with the ways to do a job better/more efficient, and or less expensive. It could be from a process improvement prospective as well, which consequently results in the saving of money, resources and labor hours. The PAIO representative for this program ensures that all mentioned factors are considered prior to forwarding the suggestion to its functional area for approval.
