Suggestion Program


As employees of MDCBDSN, you have the opportunity to contribute to our future success and growth by submitting suggestions for practical work-improvement or cost-savings ideas.

All employees are eligible to participate in the suggestion program.

A suggestion is an idea that will benefit MDCBDSN by solving a problem, reducing costs, improving operations or procedures, enhancing customer service, eliminating waste or spoilage, or making MDCBDSN a better or safer place to work. Statements of problems without accompanying solutions or recommendations concerning co-workers and management are not appropriate suggestions.

All suggestions must be submitted in writing and should contain a description of the problem or condition to be improved, a detailed explanation of the solution or improvement, and the reasons why it should be implemented. If you have questions or need advice about your idea, contact your supervisor for help.

Submit suggestions to the Executive Assistant and, after review, they will be forwarded to the QA/RM Committee. If your suggestion is implemented you will be given special recognition and will be considered for a bonus, per policy #374.


To improve employee morale and agency efficiency.
