HARRISBURG — Auditor General Eugene DePasquale on Wednesday is expected to announce an expanded audit of the state Department of Education to include special hirings such as the agency's 15-month extension of employment for former Secretary Ron Tomalis. “We've been hearing about that,” said DePasqaule, a Democrat. “People have been contacting us.” The office's audits typically deal with problems in agencies but don't name people. But the $139,000 salary extension and pension boost Tomalis received is one reason for expanding the audit under way, said DePasquale's press secretary, Barry Ciccocioppo.
