Promoting Good Governance through Accurate Contest Management Software
Government-sponsored contests like the BBC are a good way to promote transparency within the public sector. People will want to know whether or not their hard-earned money, paid as taxes, is going where it’s supposed to go. Obama cited transparency as one of his first agendas, issuing the Open Government Directive in 2009. In the BBC’s case, one of the prizes includes a tax incentive for energy reduction. Buildings that manage to cut energy costs by 20 percent are entitled to credits of $0.60 per square foot. It’s important for government agencies to exercise transparency when hosting competitions and other events, something good contest management software like Skild can help with.
