Nationwide mismanagement of Job Corps calls for action!

JOB CORPS’ REPORTED PERFORMANCE MEASURES DO NOT COMPLY WITH ALL LEGISLATIVE REPORTING REQUIREMENTS OIG (2009)

Important OIG Investigation (2009) Read the entire report here:
The older OIG reports published here further expose and prove the seriousness of the Job Corps and its contractor’s manipulation of numbers and false statistics–nothing has changed.  We are building new Job Centers and increasing the yearly amounts of money for this program based on falsified reports.
What OIG Found

“The Department did not fully comply with WIA and GPRA reporting requirements. As a result, Congress, OMB and other decision makers may have lacked some critical data for making informed decisions regarding the Job Corps program.”

“We also found that Job Corps did not fully comply with OMB’s reporting requirements for job placement outcomes. Job Corps did not include all students who left the program in its reported job placement data, but instead only reported placement outcomes for students who had been enrolled for at least 60 days.”

    This report came out over one year ago and what has the OMB done about the report that was never submitted to Congress? The National Job Corps Director was fired allegedly for not submitting the report and a new Director has been appointed, but we have not seen any public notice of what the OMB plans to do about this situation. Will the truncated statistics be allowed to continue? Will the Job Corps get away with not reporting to Congress as required? What kind of accountability can possibly exist when a government employee takes it upon herself to deliberately violate the law?

    Students who dropped out prior to 60 days in the program and certain other disciplinary terminations are not included in the performance measurement statistics. About 30% of student drop-outs fall into the two categories mentioned above. If all students were included in the statistical pool, the outcome statistics would show a very different story from what is reported to the public.

    This is just another example of our government burying the facts about fraudulent use of our taxpayer dollars. They don’t want the public to know the truth about the performance of this program and about how the “fat-cat” contractors are lining their pockets at our expense.
