WASHINGTON (AFNS) --

Air Force officials have posted a new set of topics (in the form of challenges) on the Revitalizing Air Force Squadrons crowdsourcing/idea website after closing out the first set of challenges June 19, 2017.

The site averaged more than 3,000 views per day with more than 16,000 total votes on the first set of challenges. 

"We received over 600 ideas from Airmen across the Air Force, which included ideas such as displaying squadron identity on uniforms, ways to help us increase focus on the core mission and improving family support,” said Chief Master Sgt. Robert Stamper, the Revitalizing Air Force Squadrons chief. “Users voted and helped us identify the top ideas."

The top-voted ideas have been submitted to Brig. Gen. Stephen Davis, the Revitalizing Air Force Squadrons team lead, and the Revitalizing Air Force Squadrons Core Team. The team is reviewing ideas for assignment to the appropriate subject matter experts for further action. 

"Some of the highest-voted ideas we received from Airmen pertained to uniform changes and the desire for outward displays of squadron identity,” Davis said. “We have already provided information from these ideas, along with similar data from our field visits, to the Air Force Uniform Board

The ideas and results from the first set of challenges can be found here: https://www.milsuite.mil/revitalize.

A second set of challenges has been posted, which includes the topics of higher headquarters support to squadrons, centralized/decentralized support to squadrons, job-specific training, and improving feedback. 

"We are looking for Airmen to provide their ideas on how to get after some of the issues we’ve been hearing about during our recent field visits,” Davis said. “We have also kept the Open Ideas Forum, which provides Airmen the opportunity to submit ideas on any topic related to revitalizing squadrons." 

The CAC-enabled milSuite website provides an online presence for Airmen to offer ideas on how to revitalize Air Force squadrons. Airmen are encouraged to address specific topics presented in the form of challenges and to help identify the best ideas by voting, commenting and sharing. The top-voted ideas will be presented to the Revitalizing Air Force Squadrons team and then to Air Force senior leaders.

This effort directly supports Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein’s focus area number one – revitalizing Air Force squadrons.
