How to Submit a Suggestion
After Submitting a Suggestion
The State Suggestion System Coordinator will acknowledge receipt of your suggestion. The suggestion, if acceptable, will be referred to your Agency Award Coordinator and Agency Award Committee for evaluation. If your suggestion requires more than 30 days to complete the evaluation, you will be informed about the delay. The complexity of a suggestion or the need for extensive testing may necessitate a longer evaluation period.
After your suggestion has been evaluated, the Agency Award Committee will recommend adoption or non-adoption to the Agency Head or designee. If adopted, you will receive a cash award with a certificate. Whether adopted or not, you will receive a copy of the evaluation.
If your suggestion is not adopted and you are dissatisfied with the reasons for non-adoption, you may appeal the decision within 30 calendar days from the date of the original letter of non-adoption. You must submit additional or supplemental information which was not previously covered or which points out an error in the evaluation report. Your appeal should be sent to the DAS -Personnel Division Director. You retain rights to your suggestion for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of the letter of non-adoption. If your suggestion is placed in effect during this two-year period, you may request reconsideration of your suggestion.
