As per ALCOAST 365/12, the entire USCG Innovation Program has undergone an intensive analysis. As a result, a forthcoming ALCOAST will announce all of the changes and describe how the new USCG Innovation Program will operate.

In the meantime, encouraging innovative people and teams remain top priorities for the USCG Innovation Program. We know our creative and talented workforce will continue to develop clever solutions to today's problems. As we look toward the program's future, the focus will be on crowd-sourcing within our workforce for challenges that don’t have solutions yet. By using a targeted approach, we know we can get the solutions to the challenges being sent out via a collaborative ideation tool. The challenges will connect the prioritized strategic problems with the Coast Guard's long-standing innovative workforce.
