Committee Recommendation:

Based upon the survey responses, the PERC Committee believes the CPP Pilot Program was successful and provided a valuable benefit to participating employees, as well as to the participating Department programs. Additionally, although the Committee acknowledges it is unable to determine/report any conformable environment impact(s) (positive or negative), it, nevertheless, believes the overwhelmingly favorable response to the program by our employees in itself makes the pilot a success and warrants favorable consideration for its expansion.

Accordingly, the PERC Committee recommends that, should the CPP program be approved by the Department of Civil Service for full implementation within the DEC Central Office, DEC Executive approve the program as a permanent offering available (pursuant to established guidelines) to all Central Office employees.

Additionally, the Committee also recommends that Executive consider offering the CPP program in the near future throughout the Departmentís Regional offices.
