e. Recommend appropriate legislation to the State Treasurer and perform other actions deemed necessary by the State Treasurer to implement this chapter;  and

f. Provide, under rules adopted by the Department of the Treasury, for review of equal employment complaints.  Such rules shall, at minimum, (1) require that each State agency create a written record of each complaint received and provide a uniform format and procedure for creating and maintaining that record;  (2) require that the State agency interview the person submitting the complaint to determine the nature and scope of the complaint;  and (3) when the person submitting the complaint is the person against whom the discrimination is alleged to have occurred, require that the State agency notify that person as to whether an investigation into the complaint will be conducted and if not, the basis for such a determination.
