Nationwide mismanagement of Job Corps calls for action!

Office of the Inspector General Report Minact Corporation August 2010

Read the entire OIG report here:

Mold, non compliance with safety and health inspections and retention of potentially violent students… the continuing saga of Job Corps and its “for profit” corporations who place greed before its public trust…

The newest Office of the Inspector General Report published August 10, 2010, found that Minact Corporation did not follow the requirements for reporting financial expenditures and managing safety and health programs at its Excelsior Springs Job Corps Center in Missouri.

The questionable expenditures amounted to $203,921 and in addition to not performing safety and health inspections as required, Minact did not follow federal disciplinary procedures nor convene all the Fact Finding boards (FFB’s) for level I and II infractions committed by students.  These level infractions include acts of physical violence committed upon others or threats of violence towards others. Non compliance with the regulations could expose staff and students to violent acts and unsafe conditions on centers. Readers may remember that I reported on this in this blog about Shriver Job corps retaining students who should have been separated because we needed the numbers in order to improve our OBS (On board Strength).  See article here:

Of particular interest to me are the photos of the mold growing on the ceiling of the culinary storage area, exposed ceiling tiles in a classroom, and protruding electrical outlet boxes on a classroom floor (Excelsior Springs Job Corps, page 13 and 14 of OIG report).  Would you want to send your child there… further… you are paying for this program through your taxes, are you satisfied that your tax dollars are being put to good use?

Minact Corporation operates the following Job Corps Centers:  Batesville Job Corps, Dr. Benjamin L. Hooks Job Corps, Gulfport Job Corps, Quentin Burdick Job Corps, Shreveport Job Corps, Excelsior Springs Job Corps, Gerald R. Ford Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers, Hubert H. Humphrey  Job Corps, St. Louis Job Corps
