    Request for authorization to pay overtime for the following employees currently working on the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) Implementation Project: The estimated overtime is between 10 and 25 hours per week for the duration of the project. Permission to pay overtime for the other staff members working with this implementation project was granted and is currently in effect until October 31, 1998.

    Request for authorization to pay 142.5 hours of overtime to Daniel Maxwell, IT Network Analyst, accrued during staffing shortages and conversion of network in the home office and five regional offices to NT servers. Compensation arrangements had been made with Mr. Maxwell before he resigned from the State Insurance Fund.


4. Request for authorization to use another $250,000 of Penalty & Interest monies to fund the State Information Technology Training Program during Fiscal Year 1999, per Idaho Code §72-1348(b). The Board of Examiners previously approved $200,000 for this program.

5. Request for authorization to use $18,000 of Penalty & Interest monies to pay 1998/1999 membership dues to the Interstate Conference of Employment Security Agencies, Inc., per Idaho Code §72-1348(b).

6. Request for authorization to use $20,000 of Penalty & Interest monies as state matching and supplemental funds for the Idaho Rural Partnership federal grant, per Idaho Code §72-1348(b).

7. Request for authorization to use $50,000 of Penalty & Interest monies to finance reengineering of the computerized information system used by the Wage and Hour Section, per Idaho Code §72-1348(b).


8. Request for authorization to pay accrued compensatory time to the following members of the Bureau of Forensic Services (BFS): If these employees are required to reduce their compensatory time balances through taking time off, the laboratories will find it increasingly difficult to respond to the continually increasing demands for services placed upon them by the criminal justice community statewide.
              Aaron Brudenell 41.0 hours
              Rick Groff 22.5 hours
              Chester Park 46.5 hours
              Susan Williamson 94.5 hours
              Donald Wyckoff 90.8 hours

9. Request for authorization to pay 100 hours compensatory time to Michael C. Key, Information Technology Resource Manager, Bureau of Criminal Identification, accrued from December 1997 through mid-May 1998. Should he be required to reduce his compensatory time balance through time off, it would be extraordinarily difficult to meet the growing demands placed upon him and his activity and still ensure mission accomplishment.

10. Request for approval of draft Moving Policy for the Department of Law Enforcement. They intend to use the policy as a cover sheet for the State of Idaho Moving Policy which will clarify that reimbursement may not always be at the maximum rate allowable by the state, and to outline their internal approval procedure.

    Request for authorization to exceed the $1,000 lump sum bonus amount during Fiscal Year 1998 for the following employees: Nine employees would receive an additional $400.00 each, one employee an additional $150.00, and one employee an additional $100.00. The bonuses are to be funded through salary savings incurred in FY 1998.
      Gladys Esquibel 700.00 Dave Cooper 1,000.00
      Sue Payne 750.00 Dick Stoneker 1,000.00
      Cal Pinkston 1,000.00 Maggie Blackstead 1,000.00
      Roger Button 1,000.00 Maya Babish 1,000.00
      Arnie Wallace 1,000.00 Steve Grupe 1,000.00
      Barry Thompson 1,000.00
      Request for reimbursement of closed cases handled by the Ada County Prosecutor dealing with the prosecution of State Penitentiary inmates for 1997 in the amount of $13,778.91. Legislative Services Office has audited this claim, found the amount correct, and recommends payment of $13,778.91.

      Request for approval of the 1998 Idaho Code Annual Distribution List, pursuant to Idaho Code §73-212.
