JOB CORPS NEEDS TO IMPROVE ENFORCEMENT AND OVERSIGHT OF STUDENT DISCIPLINARY POLICIES TO BETTER PROTECT STUDENTS AND STAFF AT CENTERS

WHY OIG CONDUCTED THE AUDIT From January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2013, the OIG received numerous complaints alleging serious student misconduct (e.g., assault, illegal drugs, and fighting) at 12 centers often went uninvestigated, disciplinary actions were not taken, and some centers were unsafe. To address these general allegations, we conducted a performance audit to answer the following question:  Did Job Corps’ center management take appropriate action to address alleged serious student misconduct at its centers?

exerpt:  Our audit generally covered CYs 2012 and 2013 to include the potential serious misconduct concerns cited in the complaints. We interviewed management and staff at ETA, Job Corps, and select centers and center operators; interviewed complainants (e.g., current and former center staff) and enrolled students; reviewed applicable regulations, requirements, policies, processes, and controls; assessed the reliability of all serious student misconduct infraction data reported in Job Corps’ Center Information System (CIS) and determined the data was sufficiently reliable to accomplish our audit objective; reviewed all serious student misconduct infractions reported in CIS, security logs for 11 centers, student misconduct files, and other necessary records; and performed on-site audit work at the Northland, VT, Tulsa, OK, and Treasure Lake, OK, centers. Where appropriate, complaints were referred to the OIG’s Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations for potential criminal investigation.
