The One-Stop System Must Continue To Work toward Readiness. [Audits of One-Stop Systems in California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, New York, and Vermont].
Office of Inspector General (DOL), Washington, DC.
This document contains the reports on audits of the one-stop systems in California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, New York, and Vermont. The overall audit conclusions were as follows: (1) the states have made substantial efforts toward forming new comprehensive workforce investment systems as mandated by the Workforce Investment Act (WIA); (2) the states have generally opened one-stop centers capable of providing user-friendly services to customers; (3) as of the time of the audits, development of the infrastructure for the one-stop system was not complete; and (4) state and local boards, memoranda of understanding, cost-allocation methods, and data collection systems must be instituted to ensure the service delivery, customer choice, program accountability, and continuous improvement that are fundamental to WIA. The state reports were all based on a standard format that included the following components: (1) background information; (2) objectives and scope; (3) audit results with respect to six areas (including all WIA-required one-stop partners; opening centers in each local area; establishing agreements with agencies; developing a financial system to meet one-stop needs under WIA; developing a data collection system; and providing access to services at the one-stop centers); (4) recommendations; and (5) state responses to the draft report.
