Throughout Stage One of the Innovation ENJINE Challenge, New Jersey State government employees have leveraged their knowledge, expertise, and experience to develop ideas to improve New Jersey State government for the benefit of our residents and communities in the Garden State.
Throughout the competition, more than 2,000 employees from every level of more than 20 different departments and agencies have participated, and hundreds of ideas have been contributed. The following top twenty ideas - as rated by these participating public officials - have been selected to advance to Stage Two.
Implementation plans are now sought for these Stage Two Ideas. Teams and individuals are invited to apply, whether or not they submitted the original idea.
Similar ideas that ranked in the top twenty have been consolidated. Doing so allows additional ideas to be considered for implementation. The Governor's Office has also selected five “Impact Ideas” that, although not meeting the voting threshold, will also be included in Stage Two.
Please note that inclusion as a shortlisted idea in Stage Two is not an endorsement of the proposal. In fact, most of the listed ideas have robust pro- and con- discussions on their merits on the portal. Rather, being in the Top 20 reflects interest in exploring the idea further.
