The deadline for federal agencies to spend their budgeted dollars if fast approaching. By September 30th, agencies must use the funds they’ve been allotted or lose them. With a little over a month left until the deadline, GovDesignHub has created a list of three ways federal agencies can use their year-end funds to improve digital design projects. Training, upgrading technology, and multiuser licenses provide worthy avenues for agencies to spend their remaining dollars.
Spending money on training is a strategic move to ensure teams are prepared for the coming year. For example, the Autodesk Authorized Training Centers (ACTs) provide resources to help agencies identify needs and pairs the organization with training programs within budget. Updating outdated technology can increase productivity and decrease cost with time-saving features. Take Autodesk Collections, the software package offers agencies a flexible way to access software and data for specific projects.
Investing in multiuser licenses can also benefit employees and drive productivity. When multiple teams need to access the same software, they can do so without stopping another person’s work. Sharing a license is easy and can be done with anyone on the same network.
