The subsidy value and jobs projection came from: Richard Newman, "Next Stop, Jersey City; Goldman Sachs Moving Some Operations to New Complex," The Record, January 29, 2002.

Notes: 

The 10-year BEIP award, given shortly after the 9/11 attack prompted many New York City companies to consider dispersing their operations, was based on the assumption that Goldman would relocate 2,000 employees from Manhattan. As of January 2013, about $93 million of the award had been disbursed. BEIP subsidies are grants based on the state withholding taxes paid by new employees. The BEIP award is also listed in the main Subsidy Tracker data.
