The Board must certify to the Division of Budget and Planning the costs associated with each medical benefit option.
Before the first of every September beginning in calendar year 1996, the entity designated by the Governor to make recommendations on a total compensation package for state employees shall analyze the options provided by the Board and shall make recommendations regarding what portion of the costs should be paid by the State and what portion should be paid by the employee.

The Office of Administration shall solicit information from all state departments and the General Assembly in determining which benefits are appropriate and prudent to include in the benefits plan.
