(b)

For which the act of developing or proposing is not a normal part of the job duties of the state employee, whether acting individually or as a member of a group of state employees;

(c)

Which is not within the state employee’s authority or responsibility to carry out or implement, whether acting individually or as a member of a group of state employees;

4.

Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, a state employee, either individually or as a member of a group of state employees, may not submit more than two employee suggestions in any calendar year. For any employee suggestion submitted by a state employee, either individually or as a member of a group of state employees, that is approved in a calendar year, the state employee may submit one additional employee suggestion during that same calendar year.

5.

The Board may, in consultation with the Budget Division of the Office of Finance and the Interim Finance Committee, establish such additional standards for the making and submission of employee suggestions as it deems proper.
