Nationwide mismanagement of Job Corps calls for action!

Audit Reports of Job Corps from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG)

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 »

How To Use the Job Corps Fraud Website

There are many resources on this website that I’d like to familiarize our readers with:  At the top of the home page you’ll see a “Browse by Topic” tab.  If you click on the tab and scroll down to the list of Job Corps Centers you can see if your center has been in our news. There are also interesting stories about the infamous contractors who make a profit running the various Job Corps Centers throughout the US (make sure to read about MTC Corporation and Adams and Associates two of our most notorious operators).  This is also where to find links to OIG Reports.  The Office of the Attorney General is charged with the responsibility of investigating claims of fraud and integrity abuse at Job Corps Centers; they submit their reports to Congress twice a year and every year, they produce juicy reports on the various Job Corps Centers, some even with pictures of mold and falling down ceilings in dormitories… makes for very interesting reading. 

Last but not least, find the column that lists “PAGES”  on the Home Page.  Make sure to read, “Our Stories” and “Complaints”, which details how to file a complaint against your Job Corps Center.  There is a wealth of information here, we hope to serve the public through this website.  We also appreciate stories sent to us privately about your Job Corps experience.  These will not be published unless you ask us to and we will never give out your name or personal information.

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.
