Nationwide mismanagement of Job Corps calls for action!

Kittrell Job Corps improper manipulation of student attendance OIG (2005)

-“The OIG conducted an audit of the Kittrell Job Corps Center, in Kittrell, North Carolina, to determine the merits of an OIG Hotline complaint alleging that center managers manipulated student attendance and training records to improperly inflate reported performance. Our audit substantiated this allegation.”

“We found that Management Training Corporation (MTC), the firm that manages Kittrell, overstated student attendance and, therefore, could potentially have been overpaid a maximum of $664,000 for the period of January 2000 through December 2003. We also questioned the validity of $112,000 in incentive fees paid to the center operator during the first year of its performance-based contract. In addition, Job Corps’ oversight of center operations was compromised because reported performance affects management decision making and the level of center supervision.”

    Some employers are reluctant to implement new systems because of the challenge of having employees accept the changes. In addition to the cost of the system, there may be the added cost of employees who will need to be replaced because they choose not to adjust. With proper planning, training, and preparation, employees will see the benefits to themselves and the company. They will also feel confident that they can make the adjustments to it. Newer employees are going to be more accepting of changes than the senior staff.
