Accomplishment: Demonstrating his excellent organizational skills and commitment throughout the CEIS economic impact reporting project. He worked with Cathy to identify qualifying project data and then disseminate this data with instructions to CEIS' corporate partners for completing the mandatory impact report for our NYS funder, NYSTAR. Once disseminated, the data and report responses were tracked for over 40 companies with more than 140 projects through the 9/15 deadline with clarifications and reminders as necessary.
Benefit to the Hajim School: This economic impact reporting is a key metric to NYSTAR of the success of the 15 Centers for Advanced Technology (CATS) that they fund throughout NYS and the Rochester CAT has a reputation for high quality reporting of its projects, expenses and economic impact. Luke's efforts over the past 3 months on this portion of the report allowed CEIS to capture over $15 million in impact from 20 partners by the submission deadline.
