(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today submitted to the Ohio General Assembly a revised 2011 annual report regarding business entities that were granted economic development awards from the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD). The report describes to what extent those entities complied with the terms and conditions of the awards they received.
After the original report was released, ODOD discovered additional information regarding compliance with their economic development programs that was shared with the Attorney General’s Office. To ensure the accuracy of the revised information, the AGO spent an additional 930 man hours examining 1,622 files to ensure the revised report presents the most accurate possible picture of businesses’ compliance with the terms and conditions of their award agreements.
The revised report indicates that 199 businesses met the terms and conditions of their state awards and 138 did not. This represents an overall compliance rate of 59.1 percent.
The revised Compliance Report is available for viewing at the Ohio Attorney General’s website, www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov.
