Auditing JTPA. A Report on NACo's Survey of Job Training Partnership Act Programs To Determine the Extent to which Local Job Training Programs Are Being Audited.
Bomberg, Neil E.
The National Association of Counties (NACo) conducted a mail survey of service delivery areas (SDAs) to disprove allegations that 40 percent of them had not been audited since the start of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) in 1983. A questionnaire was developed and mailed to every third SDA on a list of all SDAs. Of 244 SDAs, 235 or 96 percent responded. All responding SDAs indicated they had been audited. Nearly all (92 percent) had been audited within the past 24 months. Eighty-nine percent indicated they were audited once each year; 91 percent indicated they were subject to the Single Audit Act. Data showed that 54 percent of the SDAs subject to a single audit were part of a larger city-, county-, or statewide audit, which could indicate that in a single audit procedure, SDAs that were part of larger audits would be "rolled into" the larger audit and be reported as part of the larger audit. Data also suggested that when an SDA had greater control over its audit, the scope of the audit was likely to be more inclusive than when the audit was part of one for larger governmental units. More than half of all SDAs that were subject to A-110 audits seemed inclined to ensure that their SDAs were also in conformance with the Single Audit Act. (The survey instrument is attached.) (YLB)
