Meeting Summary - Employee Suggestion Board
May 10, 2005
10:30 am - 11:30 am
Investment Board, 121 East Wilson Street, Madison, WI

PRESENT:

Board Members:    Sandy Drew, Member; David Vriezen, Member
OSER Staff:   Robert Toomey, Statewide Program Coordinator

REGULAR  BUSINESS:

The Board decided to revise the regular cash award procedures.  When computing the standard formula for determining cash awards, any resulting amount from $25 to $49 will receive the new minimum cash award amount of $50.   Any result from the calculated award format which is from $51 to $99 will automatically receive a cash award of $100.  From $100 and up, the cash award will be the same amount.  (The maximum cash award remains unchanged, at $1,000.)

The Board also affirmed historic past practice wherein the Board has occasionally (rarely) given nominal cash awards to suggestions that do not have tangible cost savings, but rather offer an outstanding health/safety benefit to the State of Wisconsin.

NEW SUGGESTIONS:

The Board reviewed and decided on the following regular employee suggestions:
