5 all state appropriations to the corporation and exclude taxes
6 derived pursuant to s. 125.0104.
7 (b) For purposes of calculating the required one-to-one
8 match, the corporation shall receive matching private
9 contributions in one of four private match categories. The
10 corporation shall maintain documentation of such categorized
11 contributions on file and make such documentation available for
12 inspection upon reasonable notice during its regular business
13 hours. Contribution details shall be included in the quarterly
14 reports required under subsection (8). The private match
15 categories are:
16 1. Direct cash contributions from private sources, which
17 include, but are not limited to, cash derived from strategic
18 alliances, contributions of stocks and bonds, and partnership
20 2. Fees for services, which include, but are not limited

400 equivalency value. In order to avoid duplication in determining
