This document is a transcript of hearings on evaluation of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA). Focus of the hearing was on mismanagement and misappropriation of CETA contract funds, especially in the last days of the Carter administration. Testimony was given by various present and former officials of the Department of Labor, which administers the program. During the hearing it was alleged that certain Department of Labor officials had blocked needed audits of questionable programs for political reasons. It was also alleged that certain CETA funded programs had grossly mismanaged their funds, resulting in waste and possible fraud. Programs in Washington, D.C. and South Carolina were especially noted as questionable and needing audits. In addition to the testimony of witnesses at the hearing, the transcript includes prepared statements by former and present officials, attorneys for various CETA projects, newspaper articles, and other documents.
