    being given to an $85.0 Million proposal to construct a 230,000 SF Tax
    Central Office, DRES identified Main Street Centre for sale.
•   Approval was obtained for a DGS Blanket Property Acquisition fund that
    was included in the Bond Bill passed during the 2008 Special Session I.
•   The cost avoidance to be achieved is approximately $33.0 million
    when compared to the cost of constructing a new Department of
    Taxation headquarters building and the resulting building is
    approximately 85% larger.
