CLARIFICATION OF PREVIOUS AWARD:

The Board re-reviewed a suggestion (FY05-09, from Lynn Nachreiner & Steve Anderson, DOT) and found that the summary and agency-recommended award appeared to differ from the actual savings for 5 years.  Toomey will contact the agency for further information; if the agency confirms that the previous award amount of $500 ($250 each) was insufficient per the standard award procedures, then the suggesters will receive an additional amount of $250 each to reflect the corrected award. 

ANNUAL AWARDS:

The Board will hold the Annual Awards Ceremony in the Governor's Conference Room at the State Capitol in mid-November; date will be finalized once the room reservation has been finalized.  The Board decided on the annual award winners -- Individual Suggester of the Year, Group Suggestion of the Year, Agency of the Year, and Agency Coordinator of the Year -- and those winners will be announced in a press release and on the web site closer to the date of the annual awards ceremony.

NEXT MEETING:

The next meeting will be the Annual Awards Ceremony in the Governor's Conference Room at the State Capitol on November 15, 2005, beginning at 11:00 a.m.
