About the CLEAR Portal and Database
The CLEAR Portal serves as a platform for submitting lessons learned, ideas, or solution
requests. We strongly encourage Department employees to utilize the provided links to
access and complete the relevant form for their submission. Additionally, they can also
review previously entered information for reference.
By sharing information within the Department, we foster a collaborative environment that
enhances efficiency across all our endeavors.
What happens after I submit my best practice, lesson learned, or innovative idea?
To maintain the quality and reliability of the shared information, all submissions undergo
a rigorous vetting process before being added to the CLEAR Database. By subjecting
submissions to a vetting process, we ensure that only the most relevant and valuable
ideas are included in the database. This careful evaluation helps us maintain a record
of the knowledge shared, allowing personnel to search and explore these ideas when
seeking to implement them in projects or programs.

The CLEAR Program needs your feedback in order to foster a culture of knowledge
