new text begin The commissioner shall establish a program to solicit suggestions from state
employees for ways to reduce the costs of operating state government or for ways of
providing better or more efficient state services. The commissioner may make a onetime
award to an employee or group of employees whose suggestion is determined by the
commissioner to have resulted in documented cost-savings to the state. The maximum
award is the lesser of ten percent of the documented savings in the first year in which
the employee's suggestion is implemented or $2,500. Money is appropriated from the
fund in which the savings occurred to the commissioner for purposes of making awards
