Nationwide mismanagement of Job Corps calls for action!

Jacksonville and Earle C. Clements Job Corps Centers and Accounting Audit Findings (OIG 2005)

From 2004 – 2005 the Office of the Inspector General performed an audit of 12 Job Corps Centers
WHY READ THE REPORT Read the report here: M.D. Oppenheim & Company, under contract to the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Inspector General, conducted a performance audit of Job Corps Center operating costs at 12 contractor operated Centers for the period October 2004 through March 2005. Center operating costs are reported monthly to the Office of Job Corps on Form ETA-2110, Job Corps Center Financial Report, and include direct Center expenses such as Center staff salaries, student food, student clothing, utilities, and medical expenses, as well as contractor fees and indirect general and administrative expenses. The audit was performed in conjunction with the audit of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Consolidated Financial Statements for Fiscal Year 2005.
there was a lack of adequate internal controls over program expenditures at the Earle C. Clements Job Corps Center;
there was improper recording and reporting of indirect administrative costs at the Jacksonville Job Corps Center; and
journal entries were not properly approved, adequately supported, or correctly recorded at five Job Corps Centers.
Instances of noncompliance such as these can result in overbilling to the government and an increased possibility of fraud through the manipulation of accounting records.
Jacksonville Job Corps is operated by Applied Technology Corporation and Earle C. Clements Job Corps is operated  by Management and /Training Corporation.
