Every year, Pennsylvania gives out hundreds of millions of dollars in grants, loans, and other financial help to companies. In exchange, the companies promise to invest. Maybe they'll build a new office, or create a certain number of jobs, for instance.
The Department of Community and Economic Development gives out this money, and it's also responsible for holding companies to their promises.
The state auditor general recently came out with a report saying DCED needs to do a better job. The audit looked at how DCED monitored nearly $213 million it gave out in five of its programs from 2007 to 2010.
