  3. Submitting an idea to an innovation search:
    • On the Navigation bar at the top of the screen, click "Submit an Idea" - this will open a list of available searches to submit to.
    • Scroll down on the searches page and click "Learn More" on the search you’d like to submit to.
    • Click "Submit Your Idea"

      • Click "Save and Continue" (every time you complete a screen and click "Continue", your work will be saved on that screen).
