have not yet been approved such description shall include, but not be
limited to, the name and location of the applicant, the amount of
assistance requested, the date of receipt of such request, and the
status of such request.

(2) In providing such report, where necessary to promote the
development of proposed projects, the corporation may delete references
to the specific names of the participants, instead making references to
them in some other form so as to make it possible to identify the
progress of specific proposals.

(3) Such report shall provide a breakdown, for each of the regions
established pursuant to section 230 of the economic development law, of
proposals for assistance through each program. In addition, such report
shall summarize, by program, the data reported pursuant to this
paragraph.

(4) For those requests which have been evaluated and for which no
further action has been recommended, the corporation shall present
summary data indicating why no further action was taken.

(5) The corporation shall make available to each of the legislative
committees specified in this subdivision, a copy of the materials
provided to its board prior to each board meeting.

(c) Evaluations. (1) In addition to any other requirements imposed by
the act or otherwise regarding evaluations of programs administered by
the corporation, each evaluation shall include an analysis of the job
creation effect of such program, the number of small businesses that
received assistance, the number of minority and women-owned firms that
received assistance, the number of projects undertaken in distressed and
highly distressed communities, and, if applicable, the repayment
experience of borrowers of funds from the corporation.

(2) (i) In the case of any assistance programs administered by the
corporation for which independent evaluations are not otherwise
required, the corporation shall submit to the director of the budget,
the chairperson of the senate finance committee and the chairperson of
the assembly ways and means committee an evaluation of such programs
prepared by an entity independent of the corporation. Such evaluations
shall be submitted by September 1, 2005 and by September 1 every four
years thereafter.

(ii) Between evaluation due dates, the corporation shall maintain the
necessary records and data required to satisfy such evaluation
requirements and to satisfy information requests received from the
director of the budget, the chairperson of the senate finance committee
and the chairperson of the assembly ways and means committee between
such evaluation due dates.
