Developed by Singapore’s National Water Agency, PUB and the Black & Veatch + AECOM Joint Venture, the Integrated Validation Plant (IVP) at Ulu Pandan reaffirms Singapore’s commitment to water sustainability
Singapore, 24 September 2019 /3BL Media/ – The Integrated Validation Plant (IVP) at Ulu Pandan is the winner of the Engineering Project Category, for the Institution of Engineers Singapore (IES) Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards 2019.
The IVP is a testament to Singapore’s foresight to integrate advance wastewater treatment technologies with digital capabilities to minimize risks posed by extreme weather while enhancing water sustainability.
When a cause needs to process a paper donation check, it creates costly administrative work. Non-profits must deposit checks individually and issue manual tax receipts to each donor. Checks also get lost in the mail or worse, sit uncashed!
Electronic payments cut down on manual administration time and reduce costs. Unlike other software providers in this space, Benevity sends the majority (88% in 2018!) of payments processed through our platform electronically, with funds arriving within 30 days.
Consumer brands from eBay to E*TRADE have raised the bar for online customer experiences, investing in disruptive innovations, and raising expectations for all digital experiences, including those delivered by government.
Benjamin Mays, mentor to Martin Luther King, once said: “He who starts behind in the great race of life, must forever remain behind, or run faster than the man in front.” Mays’ comments were made in the context of the 1960s civil rights movement in America, but could just as easily apply to inequalities today—and with regard to our digital future.
The digital world is rewiring every aspect of our lives. From how we shop, eat, sleep and play, everything is connected. But is technology really neutral? Where are the challenges? Who is being left out and how can we use technology to foster inclusion instead? Can we prevent it from hurting our relationships? Will we ever be able to unplug?
On March 19th Booz Allen Hamilton is hosting a TEDxTysons after-work salon to discuss the possibilities and challenges of our rapidly growing digital world.
In response to citizens’ demands for fast, reliable, secure services, the U.S. government has increasingly adopted the use of open source software. Open source promises increased security, cost savings and flexibility.
Meet Booz Allen Vice President Bryce Pippert, who works with government clients to implement cutting-edge technology. Bryce maintains that open source also empowers government workers to build innovative solutions more quickly.
It’s critical to Americans’ well-being that government services are fast and reliable. We need tax returns filed and processed within minutes; automatic renewal of forms of ID; and immediate care if we get sick. To keep essential government services operating at top efficiency, there is an urgent need to rethink the processes and methods which occur behind the scenes, and ensure better public service for taxpayers.
Technology is the natural solution. But how can the government apply what’s working in the commercial sector for the benefit of citizens?
Booking a vacation? Most of us will use next-generation web tools and virtually intelligent personal assistants like Amazon’s Alexa to easily research and book flights, hotels and activities. But what if your vacation is turning into a staycation and you’re looking for fun and free things to do in your community’s background? Meet the problem solver at Booz Allen Hamilton helping to bring next-generation services to the government. Meet Sumeet Vij.
