75-37,115. Kansas quality program; state employee incentives; procedures; guidelines; quality awards, basis and limitations; rules and regulations. (a) There is hereby established the Kansas quality program within the department of administration for the purposes of providing procedures and incentives for the enhancement of quality in the business of state government. The secretary of administration shall administer the program and shall promote and assist the creation and development of Kansas quality teams in each state agency. The secretary of administration shall develop and coordinate appropriate training programs for state officers and employees in total quality management principles, which may include presentations by existing total quality management programs in firms and other organizations operating in Kansas.

(b) (1) The Kansas quality program shall be based on the principles of total quality management. The program shall provide opportunities for involvement of as many officers and employees of each state agency in Kansas quality teams as practicable to examine and improve the operations and activities of the state agency, except that no Kansas quality team shall be composed of more than 40 members unless specifically authorized by the secretary of administration. The Kansas quality program shall provide opportunities for individual quality improvement activities and recognition where such activities are determined to be more efficient and effective than establishing a Kansas quality team.

(2) In accordance with this section and with policies, procedures and guidelines prescribed by rules and regulations adopted by the secretary of administration, each state agency shall prepare a quality improvement plan containing proposed activities and quality goals for the state agency during a specified fiscal year or a portion thereof. Each quality improvement plan shall include comprehensive goals and specific goals for individual achievement or team achievement, shall be based on performance standards and other objective measures and shall be submitted for review and approval by the secretary of administration. All performance standards and other objective measures shall be stated in terms of quantitative measures in accordance with rules and regulations adopted by the secretary of administration under this section.

(c) The secretary of administration shall adopt rules and regulations for the administration and implementation of the Kansas quality program.

(d) As used in this section, "state agency" has the meaning ascribed thereto by K.S.A. 75-3701, and amendments thereto.

History: L. 1994, ch. 91, § 1; L. 2002, ch. 136, § 3; July 1.
