Abstract : The Suggestion Program and the Model Installation Program (MIP) are both productivity improvement or enhancement related programs. The Suggestion Program focuses on providing a means for government employees to submit an idea for improving operations and receive an award for their contribution. The MIP is designed to create an 'Excellent Installation' more efficient and effective in mission accomplishment. Today's austere budget requires the Air Force to eliminate as much duplication as possible to keep manpower costs at the minimum. This study looks at these two programs' objectives, processes, costs, and benefits to determine if they are both essential as distinct programs. The author concludes that the programs should be put under the same office of primary responsibility (OPR) at all levels. Eventually, the two programs should be consolidated into one mission improvement and enhancement related program.
