Department of Labor Job Training Partnership Act Report 95-S-39.
New York State Office of the Comptroller, Albany. Div. of Management Audit.
Selected practices relating to New York's Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) program during the 1993 JTPA program year were audited to determine the following: whether service delivery areas (SDAs) are providing training in occupations for which future growth is expected, whether SDAs award contracts on a competitive basis, and whether contractors are delivering services in accordance with contract terms. Auditors reviewed the New York State Department of Labor's (NYDOL) policy and procedures relating to JTPA, visited a sample of 8 of New York's 33 SDAs, and reviewed those SDAs' records pertaining to financial and program transactions. As a result of the audit, it was recommended that the NYDOL ensure that SDAs do the following: comply with the "New York State Procurement Manual for JTPA Programs"; review contractor performance for compliance with contract terms and discontinue contracting with organizations whose services are unsatisfactory; enforce contract requirements regarding maximization of financial aid; require contractors to submit documentation to validate contract billings; and confirm that participants meet all contractor- and industry-set eligibility requirements before they are enrolled in occupational training. Specific recommendations regarding the practices of the Suffolk SDA were also presented. (MN)
