The following link will take you to the Office of the Attorney General’s (OIG) website. You will find audit reports where Job Corps Centers and Job Corps Contractors did not follow required policy procedures in the areas of awarding sub contracts to vendors. And, where numbers and statistics where overstated in order to bring the center higher in overall rankings. The very first one speaks of questionable “overstatement” of costs by MTC Corporation (Management and Training Corporation) of over one million dollars. Take note, MTC is a name you will hear often in the audit reports for their continuing practice of “overstating” costs and erroneous records reflecting “overstated” outcomes on their reports. OIG says “this is a continuing problem.” Read the reports… Read the rest of this entry »

The following Powerpoint presentation by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) tightly summarizes the results of audits 2008 – 2010 and gives a partial representation of more recent audits. (Please note the link on the OIG home page to the left is where one would file a complaint with IOG about your Job Corps Center.) Also, please be reassured that OIG WILL NOT give out your name or any identifying information. When I filed my complaint with the OIG I was still working at Shriver Job Corps. I filed it approximately 5 weeks before I quit. I wanted the OIG to give Shriver my name as, I wanted to be on site so I could show the investigator where all the documentation in my complaint was located. Unfortunately, that did not happen and I left before the investigation began. OIG’s agents never gave my name to Shriver despite my wanting them to do so. Also, OIG’s staff are busy conducting other audits and they have severe time constraints due to the number of complaints and the number of available staff. It will take awhile before the investigation commences.

There have been many problems with the Cleveland Job Corps Center in Collinwood.
The Plain Dealer Editorial Board is suggesting something many of us have said for years:
“It (The Department of Labor) ought to strongly consider ditching the program and forming partnerships with local schools, community colleges and social service agencies. That’s probably true in places other than Cleveland, too. “
Alutiiq, the second Federal Contractor in the last few years was recently dismissed from managing the plagued Cleveland center. Alutiiq, with its less than savory reputation was already a poor choice before they even stepped on center. If one definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” why hasn’t someone woken up to the fact that Job Corps, as it exists now isn’t working?
