    State Government Suggestion Award Board (SGSAB)

    Any Illinois resident may submit money-saving suggestions to the State Government Suggestion Award Board. Illinois residents can win between $50 and $5,000 for a successful suggestion.

    Each suggestion is assigned a reference number, presented to the board, and if appropriate, forwarded to relevant state agencies to determine if it is feasible, original, and cost-saving.

    If an agency certifies that a suggestion is feasible, the SGSAB will consider its eligibility for an award. Each award is paid based on the savings it generates.
