     (a) The maximum cash award approved is limited to twenty

percent of the first year's estimated savings, as established by

the head of the affected spending unit, or $16,000, whichever is

less. A cash award approved by the board shall be charged by the

head of the affected spending unit against the appropriation item

or items to which the estimated savings apply.

     (b) Commencing December 2015, and every five years thereafter,

the board shall submit a report to the Joint Committee on

Government and Finance, including:

     (1) Recommendations for the maximum award amount adjusted for

inflation; and

     (2) Any other information concerning the maximum award amount.

     (c) After the board has made an award, the Governor may make

one secondary award of up to twenty percent of the additional

savings realized by implementing the suggestion in other state

agencies, not to exceed $5,000. The Governor shall pay the

secondary awards from funds appropriated by the Legislature for

secondary awards.
