                  The Syracuse CoE was established by Gov. Pataki in June 2002 to create jobs and foster investment in
                  the State as part of the Empire State High-Tech Corridor, and to spur economic growth in the Central
                  New York region. The CoE, a federation led by Syracuse University, includes collaborative research,
                  development, education and economic development programs that involve 12 academic and research
                  institutions and more than 60 corporate firms and organizations.

                  The State has committed approximately $44 million to the Syracuse CoE for investments in facilities
                  and equipment. From that total, $25.5 million will be spent at the headquarters campus project. This
                  includes $2.6 million from the New York Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research
                  (NYSTAR) for the construction of a Total Indoor Environmental Quality (TIEQ) laboratory on the site.
                  The remaining $18.4 million is being spent on campus for new labs and equipment for academic
