RULE §802.169AEL Incentive Awards

(a) The Commission may issue monetary and nonmonetary awards to AEL grant recipients, which may be awarded annually based on high-performance achievement or continuous improvement in meeting performance measures:

  (1) The Commission may determine the amount of funds for use to reward performance annually.

  (2) The Commission may use any combination of existing state or federal performance measures and may develop its own measures to evaluate performance.

  (3) If the Commission includes a measure that does not have a target, the Commission may:

    (A) set an incentive target for the sole purpose of evaluating eligible AEL grant recipients for the incentive awards (failure to meet an incentive target does not subject AEL grant recipients to sanction); or

    (B) rate performance based on each AEL grant recipient's "relative improvement" in performance from the prior year.

(b) The Commission may use a measure and a subset of a measure in the same year.

(c) If the Commission is considering issuing awards under this section, the Commission shall notify AEL grant recipients of the method by which performance shall be evaluated for the purpose of giving awards under this rule for that year.

  (1) The notice required under this subsection shall be provided to the AEL grant recipients concurrent with their yearly contracts.

  (2) The notice may include:

    (A) a listing of awards;

    (B) a listing of the performance measures to be included in each evaluation category including:

      (i) the period of evaluation for each performance measure; and

      (ii) the method of evaluation for each performance measure;

    (C) the weightings to be used to aggregate the performance measures to allow each AEL grant recipient's overall performance to be ranked;

    (D) the anticipated amount of funds available to be awarded; and

    (E) other criteria to be used to identify superior performance.

(d) AEL grant recipients that receive a performance award shall use the incentive award to carry out AEL activities as allowed by state and federal laws.

(e) The Commission may modify the assignment of awards based on factors that the Commission identifies as extraordinary circumstances.
