• About the CLEAR Portal & 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. 

    Submit Innovative Ideas and Best Practices
    The CLEAR Program needs your feedback in order to foster a culture of knowledge sharing throughout the Department. Share your best practices, innovative ideas, guidelines, and comments with us using the link below.
